Have LIST created under one site, can the same LIST be used to fetch data from other site using CAML Query.?


Consider a LIST "xxx" created under SitePages/AAA/Lists/

Can i access the LIST "xxx" from other site i.e SitePages/BBB/

To Summarize, Is it possible to access the LIST across parent and child sites, vice-versa.

Thanks in advance

you can perform a search of list by specifying its content type or/and ID or something similar to identify your list from the root web. If do a recursiv search there will be your list item returned from the web. After you need to just open a list using API.

See this post for the code.

Hope it helps,
