I have not used any custom controller or extensions...There might be a work around to  over come this limitation...Please I would really appreciate any help ...thank you

It might help if you can post a sample of the code that is performing the mass update. Not sure why you would be getting describe limit errors on a mass update.


If you aren't using any Apex in your page the first place I would look is in any triggers that may exist on the object/operation you are calling from the standard controller.


Generally this error comes when you are fetching the fields through schema.describesobject. There is a limitation of 10 fields through describesobject.

dkndkn there a work around for this...
