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

I have a DataView Webpart that displays a set of list items (articles). In each item(article) being displayed, I want to show a counter of items from another list that are linked to the unique ID of the first list. My second list consists of comments. Essentially I want to have a comment counter per article.

Thank you in advance for your answers

Fortunately, this is provided for you OOTB with SharePoint. There is a lookup column that will produce the Count Related of related items. Take a look here at this article for more in depth details, however, it'll be fairly straightforward to set up.
