I want to display my list on another site in same site collection. I edit List with SPDesigner, select the view and save it to site gallery. After these steps, I added the view webpart on my another site. Everything is fine before making change the Name of WebPart. I try to edit webpart and change the name from appearence category. I encounterd the error List does not exist. The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

I click the Go back to site and the webpart name changed. There is no problem. But I dont understand why error page is coming.

I try to find solution but I could not. Please help!!!

Thank you,

You can export the XSLT List Viewer Web Part using SharePoint Designer. After that you can embed the List View in any desired location within the same site collection. I wrote a little how-to export the xslt List Viewer Webpart a couple of while ago. This can be found here

You also need to choose yes when you export the web part.

It is suggested that you use "Content Query" Webpart and pull the list items from the top site.

It supports showing list views across different subsites and top site within a single site collection. If your sharepoint designer view is not something complex and is "just" about showing relevant columns based on certain sort order and filter , then use the content query webpart.

Iwould don't care if it works well except that specific case. There probably not-so-well coded validation over EditorPart done by product team.

Using Soap Webservices you can create a dataview webpart in sharepoint designer to display the contents of another subsite.Very good article here: enter link description here

After you have dataview webpart you can export that into your site web part gallery.

Hope this helps.
