Customizing Filter/Sort/Group Toolbar in a DVWP for Joined Subviews RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've seen many posts on similar subjects, but I haven't seen any specific solutions.  Here's the scenario: I have a DWVP with an aggregate data source of three lists.  For simplicity purposes, I have created a sample DVWP displaying a single field (Deliverables) from the first list and a single field from a joined subview.  The joined subview pulls a field (Business Unit) from the second list based upon the ID of that list entry, and that ID is included in a field (BUID) in the first list.  This works as you would expect.

    Now, I want to modify the Filter/Sort/Group toolbar in the DWVP to incorporate the field in the joined subview.  I know that the dvt_1 template calls the dvt_1.toolbar template and passes the $Rows parameter to it.  The $Rows parameter is defined as the data from the first list, so the data from the second list is not incorporated.

    I'm not a programmer, so a lot of this stuff is too technical for me.  Can anyone walk me through how to make the modifications?  We're using MOSS 2007 and SP Designer 2007. Thanks.
