SharePoint: Populating Drop Down List Field with Data from Different Site

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/SoYouKnow/archive/2010/01/21/sharepoint-populating-drop-down-list-field-with-data-from-different.aspx So, one of my SharePoint buddies from Dallas gave me a call yesterday and had a problem.

Operation ShareLove: Support Haiti Earthquake Victims & Win! Thanks for setting this up Dux!

So, I thought I’d take a minute to reflect on this past year and what’s coming for me this year. A Look Back at 2009 2009 was a truly awesome year for me as a year of growth in SharePoint and I learned that I have SO much more to learn. One of Continue reading Obligatory New Year’s Post
