Is there is a simple cross-site list rollup example around for the SpServices library?
Here is the long story.
I am new here.
I have a parent-site and N number of child-sites (AKA sub-sites) under it.
Each subsite has some List, List_X, in it.
Each List_X contains some set of required columns, Column_1 and Column_2.
Each List_X can have N number of other custom columns, where each of these custom columns may or may not exist in the List_X on other child-sites.
I need to have a ListXRollup on the parent-site that shows a aggregate grid of the required columns, showing data from each sub site.
I have tried 3rd party List Rollup Web Part but it does not work.
I tried using Designer's Data Sources area, by adding in the section "Web Services" for each child-site and then using a "Linked Source" to try to combine the data-- but that did not work and I am not sure why but I think it
is because the underlying child-site Lists have some columns that are not common across all other child-sites.
So, I am thinking that the SpServices jQuery library might do it-- but, I am so new to this library that I do not know where to begin.
What do you think?
