SharePoint 2010 Lists

I want to build a join (linked list) between two SharePoint Lists. However one list is on one site collection and the other list is on a different site collection, same FARM though.

Is this possible?   Thanks!

You are going to need a custom field to do this.  Or buy a third party app.  Or there may be some free downloads out there.

Or if you are using 2010, you could try to use the Managed MetaData service and/or published content types
