  • I'll admit that I don't get what you want to do, but I'll stab at it. 

    I suppose you could link list data to Powerpoint, then junk it up with animations and slideshows.  Else, Access.

  • Hey SClark thx for reply :-)

    I gave up and started building mig own :-) the idea is that i which to present calendar entries for that particular day on a screen situated in the hallway of our company, so employees can see if there are anyone that have called in sick and other important calendar info. Moreover i which to get info from IT and Management on the screen.

    Iam developing in visual studio (C#) and just using the Sharepoint Webservices to download the needed list info (once every 10 minutes i think) and then present in a nice form on a large screen :-)

    Found this nice article to kick-start my small project :-) http://www.infoq.com/articles/swanson-moss-web-services if anyone else want to give it a try,.

  • I would've just displayed the list on a Web Part Page using the built-in List View Web Part, but to each their own.
