Can a Lookup field pull info from a different site within WSS site

  Asked By: Robin    Date: Jul 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1340

I have a master list of products on my home WSS site. I would like
to create lookup fields in other lists that will pull from this list.
No problem. But how about if thelist with the lookup is on a separate
sub site?? I don't seem to be able to get the info from list on home
site. Is there a way around this?

Also, if I have a master documents site. Where we store all company
documents. And I create a view for a specific dept, say HR. So all HR
tagged documents are in that view. Can I have a view of those
documents on my HR site? I know I can do a page viewer web part, but
this is not very pretty. Is there another way?
