I have a contact list with NameAndExtension (Link type), Title (Text field), DepartmentSort. I tried variety of way or different web parts to make the list look like attached screen shot but they are not appearing this way. Any idea how to achieve this view on a web part?

Here is how the list looks like

NameAndExtension              Title               DepartmentSort
Brenda Oilers (Ext. 4444)     VP                  1
Steve Austin (Ext. 7777)      Director            2
John Mark (Ext. 7747)         Special Projects    4
Gill Clark (Ext. 8874)        Special Projects    4

I think you have changed the view by mistake. And in your current view some grouping is selected. You need to change the View.

  • Click on Modify View in Ribbon
  • Select the Columns you want to show(Check the check boxes)
  • MAKE SURE GROUPING IS NOT SELECTED with any column(currently in looks like in your snapshot that you have selected 'Title' as grouping.

  • varun: don't you think I have already tried what you have suggested. The LVWP does not give similar look and feel that's why I wanted to an opinion from someone on how to use a list to display the data like I attached above. Jul 9, 2014 at 16:17
  • i need to confirm from you & i don't think it's a bad idea to confirm first. Did you tried to edit the LVWP and change the view? Jul 10, 2014 at 4:43
