Cross Site Look ups

Sep 11, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Hi 
I am having problems using this in MOSS 2007 where my relationship list is in the other subsite. In this case although I can access this list using relationshipWebURL/GUID but due to the limitation of MOSS 2007 I cannot have cross site look up column defined out of the box. If I use cross site lookup like the one in http://filteredlookup.codeplex.com/. It does not seems to work. 

Is there any workaround for achieving this?
Thanks in advance.

When you say "cross site", I assume you mean cross Site Collection? The limitation is on the lookup columns, not SPCascadeDropdowns. You can store the relationship lists in the root site of the Site Collection and create a Site Column for the lookup column(s) so that you can use them throughout the Site Collection, but as you note, you can't have lookup columns which lookup across Site Collections.
