I have few sites in one of my site. There is a list, with same name say 'SOW' in all of these sites, containing site specific data.
Now, at the parent site i want to see all the data at one place from the 'SOW' list in each of the sub-sites. Below is the representation of what i mean.

                                A (Root Site)

            A1(Sub-Site)  A2(Sub-site)   A2(Sub-site) A2(Sub-site)      
             SOW(List)      SOW(List)      SOW(List)    SOW(List)

Now, at "A (Root Site)" i want to see all the data from 'SOW(List)' of each "A1(Sub-Site)", "A2(Sub-site)", "A2(Sub-site)" and "A2(Sub-site)"

Basically, i want to know whether we have some Out of the Box solution for this scenario. If not, let me know some custom solution.

Thanks in Advance.

For this kind of problem there are multiple solutions:

These are most used solutions for cross sites rollups, from these the Search based can be expanded further for Farm.

Hope it helps, C:\Marius
