The SharePoint List Roll-up Web Part Hates Me

Mar 17, 2009 at 4:23 PM
I recently downloaded the SharePoint list roll-up web part and an unable to get it to yield the desired (or any ) results. I am sure it is something i am doing wrong, but right now i just think it hates my guts and is being stubborn.

Here are the details of what i want to do: I want to create a rolled-up list of all tasks displayed on various sub-sites. The rolled-up task list should display a list of all tasks that are in the status of "In Progress" or "Not Started" and should display the information as title (with link), Status, Assigned To, Due Date.

Here is the CAML query string i am using to get started: <Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='Status'/><Value Type='Choice'>Not Started</Value></Eq></Where>.

When run, the query returns no results, yet i have many, many tasks that are in the desired status. Is there something wrong with the expression or are there limitations of the query of which i am unaware? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
