Why do I get "Error: Picklist value does not exist"?
When creating a list view where the search criteria is based on a picklist, it is only possible to enter up to 80 characters. (Including spaces)
Another possible but less common cause is that the user running the report is using a locale other than English, and the translated picklist value they are filtering on is the same as an inactive picklist value. For example, suppose a picklist contains an inactive value called "Interno", as well as an active value called "Internal" and an Italian translation for this. Because the Italian translation is the same as the inactive value, when an Italian user tries to modify or export a report using it, they will get this error. The solution for this is to delete the inactive value causing the problem.
Note: This error will also appear in reports when filtering a criteria from a field wherein the value contains comma.
