Import list items into existing list

  Asked By: Tucker    Date: Aug 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 31256

The "Import a Spreadsheet" option for creating a list is a great way
to build a new list. However, if I have an existing list I want to
import data to or if I want to re-import a refreshed spreadsheet to
update list items in a previously created list...what can I do?

I have looked at the linking of spreadsheets to lists, but that is not
the solution I need.

I have created a list and its related views. I have built webparts
from this list. Now I need to re-load the data in the list, but I do
not want to start over from scratch (which I would be doing if I
create the list from a Spreadsheet again).

The easiest way is to open the list  in datasheet view and copy/paste the
data from the new spreadsheet  in.
