Using a parent site data column within a subsite column

  Asked By: Cleveland    Date: Oct 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1979

I have a parent site with a contacts list. In the sub-site, i have a
list called projects which i would like to associate with contacts from
the parent site contacts list. Essentially I would like a sub-site
column to look at a parents site contacts column. Is there an easy way
to accomplish this? I can use SP Designer 2007 if required. Any help
would be appreciated.

My understanding is that you cannot accomplish  your goal without going to VS.
We will be using 3rd party WP from Bamboo for same purpose.

Are you wanting a lookup column  that looks up to a column on a
different site?

Found this recently, but have not tested it or used it...
