Data View Web Part-- where is it?

  Asked By: Ty    Date: Jan 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1602

I see a "Page Viewer Web part"-- but not a "Data View Web Part".

Are they the same thing??

No, they are not the same!
Can´t remember where I got the Data View web  Part from but I think
it comes with Front Page. I just navigated to the web part  gallery
and choosed "New web part" and there I found it.

Both web  parts ship with SPS03. The DataView web part  exposes data  from nearly
any type of data source, including web services. In our developer class, we
spend an entire modules on just this web part.

The page  viewer web part exposes any URL-addressable location inside the web
part's frame.

Both are rather cool.
