cross site, within collection, Lookup column RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible, through the UI or with  Designer 2007, do create a Lookup column that gets its data from another site within the same site collection?  If not, can you recommend any FREE third party tools to do this?  Thank you.

  • Hi run4it,

     

                    Sorry for keep you waitting.

                    I agree with Gardener. SharePoint designer provides professional tools for building interactive solutions on the SharePoint platform without writing code, for designing custom SharePoint sites, and for maintaining site performance with reports and managed permissions but not do some custom operations which include that. 

                   Here is a third party tool which could fix your problem but only 30-day free trial.http://www.sharepointboost.com/Cross-SiteLookup.html

  • I am not set up to do SharePoint development in Visual Studio.  Are custom field types something that can be created in Designer 2007?
