Cross site lookup columns with additional fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have main site with several sub sites underneath it. I have a list on the main site containing employee info. I have several lists on the sub sites that use employee info as a lookup via a site column I made at the root of the site collection.

    I can create the lookup just fine on a single field. However when I add additional fields to the lookup, none of the fields will populate. Also the link created by the lookup does not work.

    When the same lookup is used on a list within the same site, The additional fields checked in the site column for that lookup will work.

    How do I get the additional fields to work in a cross site situation?
