I have Sharepoint 2007 site and have to implement filter (comboboxes) for the list of employees stored in external database.

I can develop web part with asp:DropDownList(s), data access library and asp:Repeater stuff, but don't wanna mess with paging and sorting. May be it's better to populate standard sharepoint list that will be present under my filters via my DAL ?

How would you implement such a task?


Do you have access to sharepoint Designer? Create a page and connect to the external database and go on from there. Whats your Db sitting on? Patrick

  • Thank you, Patrick. It's SQL server. I'll install SharePoint Designer, it's not installed yet. – Andrew Florko Nov 14 '10 at 14:49
