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

I have Sharepoint 2007 site and have to implement filter (comboboxes) for the list of employees stored in external database.

I can develop web part with asp:DropDownList(s), data access library and asp:Repeater stuff, but don't wanna mess with paging and sorting. May be it's better to populate standard sharepoint list that will be present under my filters via my DAL ?

How would you implement such a task?

Do you have access to sharepoint Designer? Create a page and connect to the external database and go on from there. Whats your Db sitting on? Patrick

Thank you, Patrick. It's SQL server. I'll install SharePoint Designer, it's not installed yet. –  Andrew Florko Nov 14 '10 at 14:49
