I have a custom display that has a field called WBS. This field is a key field in another list called Hours. I would like to build a hyperlink on the custom display, when clicked it will display the list Hours but just the records where the WBS field = the WBS field I clicked.

Any suggestions

Watch Question

yes you can as long as the two are on the same site.

on your page add the following web parts.

Sharepoin list filter.( under filters)
the list web part that has your data.

on the list filter select the value to be the wbs column.
send connection value from the filter to the list view on that variable.

best of luck.

Okay I set that up "i think"

Now how do I call this from a different display form?
You don't need a display form .

Simply Select the item from the Filter , it will show the items on the other views.

okay so by passing:


I get the matches.  But lets say that I need to filter on
wbs=US1-CI089*  meaning that is starts with US1-CI089
no that would not work .
This is not SQL :)
