Data View Web Part, Part II

So we’ve done some more playing around with the data view web part. I think I’m warming up to it because it does have a lot of capabilities and Drew’s doing the heavy lifting.

So we’ve put together a really good Batch Duration example. It’s a combination of 3 data view web parts, feeding each other in series. The first data view allows the selection of a formula, which populates the second data view with a list of batches that meet the formula criteria. By clicking on a particular batch id then populates the third data view showing durations. We even took advantage of the web part to highlight durations that exceed a fixed amount of time. Great for doing batch to batch comparisons.
