I have a list on a subsite that I need to feature on the parent site homepage. I created the formatted data view and saved it as a web part in the gallery. I drop it on the homepage but get a "web part cannot be displayed, troubleshoot in designer" error message.
Then I created an unformatted data view and saved it to the gallery. I was able to get it to appear on the parent site homepage, but when I tried to apply conditional formatting - the columns for the "apply formatting" window don't appear - As in "Column" . It's all blank.
Am I missing something? It's just a simple dashboard with three traffic light indicators.
