I'm actually using Sharepoint 2007, but am hoping this forum will help. We want to be able to create a list based on a filtered view of another list.
I can create a Filtered List in Designer, but evidently this is saved as a query object on the server and not as another list that can be selected when using the basic Sharepoint tools. In other words, it's only visible when in Designer. This
means that in order to use this for say a lookup column in another list object, I have to modify the datasource tags for the EditForm and NewForm.aspx pages within Designer. Also, it means that adding a column would constantly require use of Designer.
We need this to be simple as not all those tasked with administrating pages will know how to do this. I thought it would be easier if I could simply source a secondary list with the filtered list I created in designer. In other words, make a secondary
list source be that of a queried view of a master list. Then this list could be used with all the simple tools provided. Is this possible? If so... how?
