TCA table “…” ctrl['type'] is set to “…”, but this field does not exist in the database of this table

This error happens for example in an extension because the TCA configuration was not suitable for the MySQL table fields defined in ext_tables.sql.

Error Example - TCA:

$TCA['tx_myExtension_table'] = [
  'ctrl' => [
     'title'     => $ll.'table.auteur',
     'label'     => 'nom',
     'tstamp'    => 'tstamp',
     'crdate'    => 'crdate',
     'cruser_id' => 'cruser_id',
     'type'      => 'type',

And in ext_tables.sql:

CREATE TABLE tx_myExtension_table (
  uid int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  pid int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
  tstamp int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
  crdate int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
  cruser_id int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
  sys_language_uid int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,


type varchar(100) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',

or any other type field definition.
