Copying/Moving SharePoint List items with attachements RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have managed easily to move lists from one sharepoint site to another. Some of my list items have attachements and I would like to know if there is an easy way to move them?

    Thanks,

  • Mike, 

    Have you tried this tool? http://spdeploymentwizard.codeplex.com/

    With this you could export that particular list and import to the corresponding site. Let us know if you have any issues importing or exporting.

  • How big is your list? If it contains less number of items, you could save it as template and import it. If the list is of bigger size that could not be saved as a list template, you could use a codeplex tool spcontentdeploymentwizard. http://spdeploymentwizard.codeplex.com/

    Does this help?

  • The list is in a different SharePoint source site. Hence, I cannot create a template and include the data. It works by exporting to a spreadsheet but some fields have to be reworked because they become custom fields. The attachements do not follow with the export. Please advise...
