Hi,

 

I want to use a SharePoint list from the top site to the sub site in SharePoint online.

 

I've used SharePoint Designer 2013 to create a data view web part which I then save to the site gallery. But when I try to add the new web part on a subsite, I receive the following error:

"The file you imported is not valid. Verify that the file is a Web Part description file (*.webpart or *.dwp) and that it contains well-formed XML."

 

Any help is highly appreciated.
