I am using SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise, and I am using publishing portal template. I have two sites of the same site colleciton and I want to use Data Source Library to make site A be able to use lists defined in site B. From site A, I am using "Connect to another library" to add site B. And from Data Source Library of site A, I can see lists defined in site B.

My question is how to use such lists in a page of site A?

I followed the guide here,

This is where you would use Data View Web Parts (DVWPs). (I think this question is hovering around in several other forms here and in the MSDN Forums.)


  • Thanks, "where you would use Data View Web Parts" -- any more guides or documents about how to use Data View Web Parts to display list from another site? – George2 Dec 10 '09 at 15:16
  • There's info all over the Web on this. I'd start with EndUserSharePoint.com. I also have a lot of stuff on my blog at mdasblog.wordpress.com. – Marc D Anderson Dec 10 '09 at 15:50
