I'm looking at using a CQWP in my project, but I need to make sure it's compatible with all the SharePoint versions we'll be implementing to.

I've seen some articles seeming to say it's MOSS only:

The Content Query Web Part is available only in sites that are located on a server running Office SharePoint Server 2007.

But I've also seen references to WSS versions:

Some Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Content Query Web Part properties are inherited from Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 ...

So, long story short: Please could you fill in any of the below boxes you're certain about?:

          | 2007| 2010|
Standard  |  Y  |  ?  |
Foundation|  ?  |  ?  |

1 Answer 1


The Content Query web part is included in the SharePoint Standard SKU, which implies MOSS for the 2007 version of the product.

          | 2007| 2010|
Standard  |  Y  |  Y  |
Foundation|  N  |  N  |

I've tried to make a complete reference table of all the SharePoint 2010 out-of-the-box web parts.

  • Thanks for confirming my suspicions. I'll use that handy reference next time too.
