Hi

We will see one of the new concepts from SharePoint 2010 which is related lists. We already have employee list with us. All we need to do is create two more lists. I am creating two lists just to show you an example. We can have as many lists we want.

Create Employee Leave list and go to list settings and create one column which is Empoyee ID and take it as a look up column from Employee list and field Employee ID. One new feature here is when you define lookup column. Now we have the ability to fetch fields from that item and display it in the list as well.

So now when you enter the data in the Employee Leaves and select Employee ID from lookup drop down, you get something like this

So what happens is, here you would be able to see parent item details as well along with the actual list data.

Now go ahead and create one more list and call it an Employee Projects. Do the same thing, add columns and add EmployeeID column lookup to the Employee list and Employee Field.

Now add some data to this list. So what we have now is three list which are connected from Employee ID look up fields. Empoyee is the main list and then we have two lists with lookup to the Employee list employeeID field.

Open the List settings page of Employee List, create one view and call it a RelatedList view. Open the related list view and click on Site actions -Edit Page.


Go to options tab and then see we have new option called related list


If I select first employee it shows realted entries in project and leave lists.


If I select 2nd employee it shows records related to that entry.
