in SharePoint 2007 I want to create custom views on survey lists without usung sharepoint designer or sharepoint server.

is it possible?


Yes, you can create custom views through browser with out using SharePoint Designer. Please follow below steps.

Select any Survey list-->Survey Settings


Edit URL with viewtype in place of Survedit


Now you are able to see all types view and you can create views based filters,sorting, grouping etc like custom/issue tracking list.


you can programmatically render the answer form of the survey as the survey is actually a web part and the columns are questions, so it just need to write a code to iterate all columns "only columns that can be sorted because these columns are the questions columns only"

I don't know what you certainly mean but if you mean you want to do this by code this is as usual possible to do.

A good start is maybe to look over here:

Programmatically create views


It is possible to create a custom view in 2007 without using code. It's just a bit tricky cause you need to understand how to manipulate the SharePoint URL.

Here are two links I find which shows you how to do this:




You can use the SharePoint Designer. Open list, select View and edit. In the ViewField section you can add the internal names of the fields.

<ViewFields><FieldRef Name="DisplayResponse"/> ... more fields ... </ViewFields>
