How To Display A Root List In a Sub-Site in Share Point Online


Have you ever wanted to show a List that was created at the root level site in a sub-site?  For example below we want to show the list "MyList" which was created in Site A in subSite B.

Site A -> MyList

Site A -> SubSite B -> MyList



To accomplish this, navigate to the root level. 

Create a Web Part Page. 

Export the Web Part Page to the Web Part Gallery.

Navigate to the page in the sub site where you want to see the list, and Add the Web Part from the Web Part Gallery

Now your list will appear in the sub-site.



I have ran into issues when using IE 64-bit.  in particular with exporting Web Parts, and also with having the DataSheet View button enabled.
