List of lists

  Asked By: Viral    Date: Aug 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1002

I have a site were diferent branchs have each one their own list with
semester results, what I want to do, is to create a list where I could be
able to consolidate that information from all of those lists in one general
list. Is this possible? how can I do it? and in the case it is possible, how
does it function when there are actualizations to the branchs lists? how is
the info on the general list sincronized?

Use the "custom list" option under the Create menu. While creating a custom
list, you can add columns which look to other lists  for their information. Click
Add new column, then choose "lookup (info already on this site)." This will
retrieve any specific column information  from another list  on the same site
level whenever the list is accessed.

I'm not sure if you can tell a custom list to retrieve info  from down a site
level, but if you play with it you might be able to find a way.
