  • How large is the list?  Some column types are known to give problems.  I'd take a template copy of the list, change the currency type into a number and try exporting that.  It should retain your values as a straight numeric.

    If it works, make the change on the live list and see how that works out.

  • Hi Steven,

    The list has 350 items with 21 columns. I tried to take the list template including content but got failed. Its giving below error.

    "The list is too large to save as a template. The size of a template cannot exceed 50000000 bytes"

    Expecting Currency column is a calculated value. It automatically filled from another list.

    Please suggest on this.
