This module allows you to embed a View as a field in another View.

The View in the view-field can accept argument values from other fields of the
parent View, using tokens.

Installation

How to use

  1. Before you can add a view-field to a "parent" view, you must create a
    "child" view.

  2. Add contextual filters to that child view. The parent view will be passing
    contextual filter values to the child so the child knows what to display. No
    other settings are necessary, but validators and "contextual filter not
    present" could be set.

  3. Create a "parent" view, if not already existing.

  4. Add child view (Global:View field). The field must be toward the bottom of
    the field list, or at least underneath the fields that are going to be used
    as contextual filters. (E.g., "node id" might be used as an match between
    the parent and child views, so put the "node id" field before your
    Global:View field in the list.)

  5. Select which View and Display to use for the child data (will require
    doing this in 2 steps - the field must be saved before the display selection
    is available).

  6. Find which tokens are available by looking at the "Replacement patterns"
    list right below the contextual filters setting. Type the token replacements,
    in order, separated by a comma, as the contextual filters for that view
    field. These values will be passed to the child. Make sure each field you
    are passing as an contextual filter is completely clean, as in: no label,
    no formatting, nothing that would pass into the contextual filter other than
    the desired text or number.
