I made a list on the top level site called Years. It is just a list of years for tagging documents with. I want this list to trickle down and be accessible within the sub sites. What do I need to do?

How do you intend to "tag" documents with a site? –  James Love Oct 15 '10 at 20:31
    
Maybe tag is the wrong word? I want "Years" as a column for my documents in sub sites –  Joe Philllips Oct 15 '10 at 20:40

Here is an article I wrote awhile back showing how to use Site Columns to reuse values in a sub-site. http://nextconnect.blogspot.com/2009/04/using-site-columns-to-reuse-data.html

Thanks. I've done that before but for some reason I missed it as I kept trying to create a new column - completely ignoring the other option –  Joe Philllips Oct 15 '10 at 21:35
