We are using WSS 3.0 and have a list that has four fields that we would like to use as the basis for a new list. Is there an option in WSS 3.0 that would allow for me to do this? Any ideas on how we can accomplish this?

  • do you want relationships to be preserved? – Falak Mahmood Nov 9 '12 at 9:19
  • Yes, in a perfect world we would like to have the four fields to be linked in the new list so that they would auto-populate. I have seen this for newer versions as "enforced relationships", but I don't know if this is possible in WSS 3.0. – Matthew Nov 9 '12 at 19:40

WSS 3.0 doesn't offer hierarchical look-ups or Connected look-ups. But, still you can implement such look-ups using one of the following two ways:

  1. You could really use the jQuery library by Marc D Anderson, see example
  2. Custom Connected Look-up from CodePlex
  • Thank you for your help. I used the JQuery library and it works great! – Matthew Nov 16 '12 at 17:21
  • Great to know that! Mark it as answer if it has helped :-) – Falak Mahmood Nov 16 '12 at 21:17
