Data View Web Part—Search Results
This last method of displaying rolled up information is the most complex of all of the other methods listed. When it comes to performance, though, this Web part is the most efficient. The creation of this Web part involves another data view Web part in SharePoint Designer, but for the rollup, it utilizes the search results Web part. This is an enterprise-only Web part and is not available in other versions of SharePoint. The efficiency of this Web part lies in the fact that it does not perform the query each time the page is loaded. The query and retrieval of the data is done when SharePoint search indexes the content source.

- This is a more technical procedure, and it requires a more intimate understanding of data and XSLT. It also of course requires the use of SharePoint Designer.
