If I have site structure as per the below:

Site Collection

-Main Site

-Site 1

-SS 1.1

-SS 1.2

-Site 2

-SS 2.1

-SS 2.2

If I have a list in SS 1.1 is there any way in which I can create a column lookup to that list from SS 2.1?

Using SP2013.

  • that's not possible out of the box, you need to write a field type yourself and deploy it as solution. Are you able to do that?

  • I have done a quick search and found some code I can edit for linking across sites. However I don't know how to specifically create a new field type for me to actually place this code.
