I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and I am using publishing portal template. I have created a list in top level site. And I want to use the list in a child site (e.g. adding the list to a page in child site by using Page --> Add Web Parts --> Browse), but can not find the list created in parent site in this way. Any ideas how to use the list (created in parent site) in a child site?

BTW: I can use the list (created in parent site) in parent site without any issues.

Check out the Content Query Web Part.

  • Thanks Anders! Could you show me more information about how to use "Content Query Web Part" to create a list which could be showed in both parent site and child site (to show the same content)? – George2 Dec 7 '09 at 15:09
