    list linnking is NOT possible between site collection

    you can link a list within the same site collection (which includes sub web)

    this is due to the fact that a site collection is considered as a boundaries

  • Hello Skrzypolus,

    As Benoit mentioned before; linking a list between site collections is not possible.  This is because list would need to pass authentication credentials between the different site collections. However, it is possible to export your list to Excel, break the connection to your first site collection, and then export that data to a list on another site collection.

  • But in that way you should use Access as import data to a list from Excel is not possible

  • Did you have any other questions about this, Skrzypolus?

  • But this solution doesn't work. Is there any other solution for this problem?

  • Skrzypolus ,

    You can use Access to link to a list, then have it link to a second list to copy changes. You could also just in the case of contacts link them into Outlook, and again copy from one list to the other, or put them into exchange so you don't need 2 copies of every contact.
