Add a List to Another List

  Date: Sep 17    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1422

I have 2 lists, the 2nd being a subset of the first. I need to add the 2nd to
the first so our users can expand it to view the items.

Can anyone please share their tips or suggestions?

Might you explain what you mean by a subset?

Answer #2    Answered On: Sep 17    

I have a list of over 120 items in alpha-order. One of those items points to
another list that has more than 20 items. Currently I just link to the 2nd list
from the main list. I want to add the 2nd list to the main list and have it
collapsed, but expandable with the + sign.

Open the lists in Datasheet view and copy-paste?

Copy List 2 into List 1. Create a column to identify content in the orignal
list 1 as opposed to the content from list 2. Group based on this identifier

Is this what you mean?

I assume there an exact common data item (column) between List A and List B.
Put a ListView Web Part for each list on a new aspx page saved in some DocLib.
Then configure "connections" to send from A to B. All of this is done through
the UI.

When you view the page, all items from A and B will show up, however, there
will be radio buttons on items in List A. When you click one of these, ONLY
the corresponding (linked) items from List B will appear.

Is this what you want?
