Error when adding a new field to a view

There is a great step by step instruction if you are wanting to add a field to a view. Just search for this topic below:

How to add fields to the Projects summary view?!?!

The problem that I am having is when I update the view with a new field, I get an error message saying "Cant update View." Does anyone know why the view cant be updated?

Well it turns out that I was able to add a new field to a view, but in a different section of the view. I guess that means that some parts of a view may not be able to update whereas other parts are. This is what I am assuming anyways. Does anyone know if that is true?

Difficult to say for sure without seeing the actual code in question, can you post your .py and .xml?
