I am trying to add two lists in a web part page along with a HTML form web part list app part to pages that are on the same sites. In order to access list from another site, I have to add one of the list in page viewer web part. However with page viewer web part I am not able to make a web part connection between HTML form Web part and list web part. Does anyone know how can we add a list web part from another subsite and make a connection with other web parts on the same page?

  • Have a look at this article Show List From Parent Site In Sub Site to show a list from another subsite and check if you can perform your connection or not! Commented Dec 23, 2020 at 15:18

  • @Mohamed, I tried to follow the instructions. I did not find 'Edit in Advance Mode option' after checking out the page so I edited in normal mode in SharePoint Designer. And save webpart to the Site Gallery as per the instructions. But When I pick webpart from Miscellaneous category I get an error "The file you imported is not valid. Verify that the file is a Web Part description file (*.webpart or *.dwp) and that it contains well-formed XML.."
