Hi,

I have created assets library for video files in subsite A and wanted add that video files library in to subsite B as a webpart.

I tried to add using dataview webpart but I was unable to change data source in designer and got an error "The server returned a non specific error when trying to get data from data source" Check the format and content of your query and try again.If the problem persists,contact the server administrator."

I tried the following scripts as well.got neither results nor error.

1. http://blog.pathtosharepoint.com/2009/01/22/a-simple-method-to-display-a-list-in-another-site/

2) <script type="text/javascript" src="http://jqueryjs.googlecode.com/files/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(function() {
        var soapEnv =
            "<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/'> \
                <soapenv:Body> \
                     <GetListItems xmlns='http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/'> \
                        <listName>Feedback</listName> \
                        <viewFields> \
                            <ViewFields> \
                               <FieldRef Name='Title' /> \
                           </ViewFields> \
                        </viewFields> \
                    </GetListItems> \
                </soapenv:Body> \
            </soapenv:Envelope>";

        $.ajax({
            url: "http://portal.iaai.com/_vti_bin/lists.asmx",
            type: "POST",
            dataType: "xml",
            data: soapEnv,
            complete: processResult,
            contentType: "text/xml; charset=\"utf-8\""
        });
    });

    function processResult(xData, status) {
        $(xData.responseXML).find("z\\:row").each(function() {
            var liHtml = "<li>" + $(this).attr("ows_Title") + "</li>";
            $("#tasksUL").append(liHtml);
        });
    }
</script>

<ul id="tasksUL"/>

Can anybody please let me know how to add webpart?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Use the XML  RSS as your communications

Intrasite can be tricky with sharepoint .


There are so many way but depending on the site hierarchy and security that can be challenging.


Here is the easy way.

Go to  your library  -> Settings - > Communication settings - > RSS Feed .

Set the columns you want on your RSS syndication .

On the Receiving end , place an RSS / XML webpart to show your feed.


PS: Also you can do the same with Content Query web part if you have the sharePoint Enterprise version.



Best of luck.

George,

Thank you for your suggestion.

I tried but it didn't worked for me due to the security level we are using.

I got the solution.It's very  simple.

1. Add list/library as a webpart on a page.

2. Open that  page in SharePoint Designer and and select design mode and then select the webpart.

3. Click Webpart on tool bar and then click To Site Gallery  to export webpart to site webpart gallery.

4. Now the webpart is available under Miscellaneous webparts category.
