In this article I am showing you how to display data from a list in another site. Here I am using Data view web part to do that.

Open the site and the page where you want to display the list in SharePoint Designer.

Open SharePoint Designer and choose "Open Site..." from the File menu give the site url and open the page by checking out the same.

From The Data View Tab click on Insert Data View by selecting the region where you want to insert the data view.

In the Data Source Library Task Pane, select "Connect to another library"; this will help us to retrieve data from another SharePoint list.
