Cause

If the Teshhold value reaches the limit which is already set to 2000 by default and we are trying to Display more number of items from the BDC.

 

Resolution/WorkAround:

1. Open SharePoint 2010 Management Shell

2. Run the bleow commands

Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy

Note: We need to use the BDC servcie application proxy GUID

$a = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | where {$_.Id –eq “<BDC servcie application proxy GUID>”}
$b = Get-SPBusinessDataCatalogThrottleConfig -Scope Database -ThrottleType Items -ServiceApplicationProxy $a
Set-SPBusinessDataCatalogThrottleConfig -Identity $b -Maximum 1000000 -Default 800000

3. Do IIS reset

 

This will help in displaying the Data in the list or Webparts
