I'm really new in javasript and can't figure out why small test example doesn't working.
All I want is autofilling one of text boxes on NewForm.
There is my code:
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
            sourceList: "{78763E22-1EBA-44E2-B691-CE6B3570264A}",
            sourceColumn: "Theme",
            columnName: "Theme",
            ignoreCase: true,
            numChars: 3,
            slideDownSpeed: 1000,
            debug: true
When I trying write something in that textbox nothing happened and I saw error at browser console (I use last version of Chrome):
POST 500 (Internal Server Error) jquery-1.10.2.js:8706
send jquery-1.10.2.js:8706
jQuery.extend.ajax jquery-1.10.2.js:8136
$.fn.SPServices jquery.SPServices-2013.01.js:1216
(anonymous function) jquery.SPServices-2013.01.js:3191
jQuery.event.dispatch jquery-1.10.2.js:5095
elemData.handle jquery-1.10.2.js:4766
What I can do to fix this?

Thanks for your time

Looks like SP did not like the request. If you look at the XML response, you may actually see the error returned (not that it will help - probably)

Try using the actual list name, not the UID.

I found the problem.
I always forgot that when we rename some element in Sharepoint, internal name of that element stay same. I rename this field, but his internal name not renamed. So SP tried to request field that doesn't exist.
I changed "sourceColumn" and now it's working perfectly.
