Just seeking confirmation..
List Roll Up Web Parts. Do they allow document library roll ups?
And do they work on WSS V3?
Kind Regards Paul

Thank you for your swift reply and assistance!
Hi Jeff, I have a few things to check before we progress with a trial of your software:
1. Our requirement is to have a combined/aggregated view of the contents of similar document libraries that are located in different sites across a single site collection in one place. We would need to filter on columns, create views etc as we would if it were a standalone document library. We assume any solution would honour the security rules of the source document library?
2. We are unsure which product to trial ie List Roll-up Webpart or the Cross List Webpart.....or another???
3. Can you distinguish between the two in simple terms please, explaining the differences between the two.
Kind Regards Paul
Yes, List Rollup Web Part honors SharePoint security out of the box down to the item level. With List Rollup Web Part, you can setup an initial filter on the data being returned into a single data set. The user can then apply "runtime" filters on the data set to meet their individual needs. Since there is multiple Libraries in a single data set, we do not provide ability to create "views" on the same rollup, but you can create multiple rollups, each containing their own filter.
As for the product you would be interested in, it would be List Rollup Web Part.
Cross List Web Part is used to JOIN lists together. When we join lists, we perform the join based on a Lookup column, great example is you have a Project Summary list that contains the project names. You then have a Tasks list with a lookup column to Project Summary. Cross List Web Part allows customers to display the Project Summary details along side the Tasks in a single view.

Hope this helps!
You have been very helpful, many thanks Paul
