Un esempio di come è possibile in SharePoint 2007 (WSS3 - MOSS) leggere gli item di una lista da remoto tramite i suoi Web Service, convertire il risultato XML in un DataSet e fare il bind con una GridView.
XML: sp.aspx

Attenzione il parametro listName si riferisce al Display name della lista oppure al guid della lista in questo formato {BAFBCDCF-0F29-4B55-BD6A-16A9F48190BD} comprensivo di parentesi graffe. E' preferibile usare sempre quest'ultimo come riportato sulla documentazione Lists.UpdateListItems Method
