We are using WSS 3.0 and have a list that has four fields that we would like to use as the basis for a new list. Is there an option in WSS 3.0 that would allow for me to do this? Any ideas on how we can accomplish this?

do you want relationships to be preserved? – Falak Mahmood Nov 9 '12 at 9:19
Yes, in a perfect world we would like to have the four fields to be linked in the new list so that they would auto-populate. I have seen this for newer versions as "enforced relationships", but I don't know if this is possible in WSS 3.0. – Matthew Nov 9 '12 at 19:40

WSS 3.0 doesn't offer hierarchical look-ups or Connected look-ups. But, still you can implement such look-ups using one of the following two ways:

  1. You could really use the jQuery library by Marc D Anderson, see example
  2. Custom Connected Look-up from CodePlex

Thank you for your help. I used the JQuery library and it works great! – Matthew Nov 16 '12 at 17:21
Great to know that! Mark it as answer if it has helped :-) – Falak Mahmood Nov 16 '12 at 21:17
