SharePoint – Understanding Data View Web Part in SharePoint Designer

Let’s see how we can connect a Display Form for a list to a Data View Web Part (DVWP).

First create a new Display Form for your respected listed.


Next insert a new DVWP using the list you want to link to.


Next you add or remove the columns to display.


Add a new Parameter using the Query String Source. In this case the ID field.


And last add a new Filter. Where you select the Form Field to send to the Query String Parameter to filter the DVWP list.


TIP : When defining the filter Value field, make sure you browse to the bottom of the drop down list, in order to see the Filter Parameter Value option.

This result looks like this.


Enjoy !
