SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a wss 2.0 environment and want to use dataview webpart to pull information from a list. I also want to do calculations based on a number of items I have on my list. Basically I want to do a summary report based on the information I have on a list.

Many thanks. Sep

You can use SharePoint Designer to pull information from the list directly or via web services.

There is a good walk through on Office.Microsoft for the webservice side of things:

One good aspect of using the web services is that it doesn't matter which installation of SharePoint you have.

Hope this helps Stephen

EDIT

I just realised if you want to do a summery of the data on the list why not just create a view on the list with all the calculations you need then add that to the web part page?
