I created field with type Entity Reference and selected exists Entity Type as Target type. Then I deleted this Entity Type, after that I see error when I'm trying to edit settings of this field to change Target Entity type to another:

EntityFieldQueryException: Entity <em class="placeholder">{entity_name}</em> has no base table. in EntityFieldQuery->propertyQuery() (line 1191 of includes/entity.inc).

So I should to remove this field and create new one instead of just edit exist field settings and change Target Entity type.

Here is a proposal patch to make the base selection handler more robust in this case.

Maybe we should have this logic already in entityreference_get_selection_handler() -- like this other modules implementing a selection handler don't need to take care of this?

Merged into 7.x-1.x

This cannot be in entityreference_get_selection_handler() because there is no reason to impose that selection handlers only work on local entity types.
