Rolliing up content

  Asked By: Emanuel    Date: Apr 11    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 607

Does anyone tried to rollup content from different sites to the
"parent/main" site? We have a Country tab as a main Intranet navigation
tab which contains all the information about countries. At the same time
the same country information pages are on different departmental web
sites. We would like to ask departments to maintain the country pages
and bubble up the content on the main country tab.

Any recommendation will be appreciated.

If you're using MOSS you can use the content  Query Web Part to roll up
content from different webs inside of the same Site Collection. If
you're using WSS you can use a Data View Web Part from SharePoint
Designer to do it. You can use the DVWP in MOSS too, if you like it

Thank you for the information.

But if I want to roll up content  outside the collection, meaning to other site
collection what is the way to do that?

We use Moss.

I think you can use the DVWP to roll up content  from other site  Collections,
but I've never been able to get it to work. I have it on very good authority
that it does though. Guys way smarter than me say it can. J Basically you need
to great a data source and connect to a web service on the other site
collection, http://server/sites/two/_vit_bin/lists.asmx for example. Connect,
then change the port to ListsSoap12. Then change the operation to GetListItems.
Double click "list name" and type in the list your data is now. Hit Ok, then
insert. That should do it. It never does for me, but you might be smarter than
I am.

I can get this to work, but I think this is because we use Kerberos
authentication which allows the web service connection to pass the
credentials of the user with the request.

I have had problems though using the web services. Some of them
return results, others don't seem to (maybe because I don't
understand what parameters to give them). To just read items from a
list, I use this alternative approach:

I'm trying this as a last-ditch thing after finding that the CQWP
doesn't explicitly display filenames off of a document library list
(it seems to be defaulting, at least for me, to some portion of the
file contents, which is backwards). What needs to be passed in as the
list name - the GUID, or the actual URL?

Answer #6    Answered By: Irving Hurley     Answered On: Apr 11

Generally speaking you'd pass in the GUID, depending on the context you
may need to include the {}.

However, content  query web aprt can not display more than one column
of data (like title, create date, etc) and can not roll up a calendar

Any suggestions?
