How to move/copy list from one site to another <EOM>

  Asked By: Tami    Date: Mar 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 6964

In List Settings, you can save the list as a template, and you can decide
whether or not to save the content of the list as well. After saving, you
can download a copy of the template, upload to the new site, and create a
list using the template.

Save the list  or a site  to be moved as a template:

Steps: List settings  and save  site or list as a template.
Give it a name and you may check the box to include content  with that template.
Click on OK. On the Operation completed successfully page click the
list template  gallary link.
Click on the link to the template you have saved to Open/save the document.
You can either save the template to another site collection by giving the
path/file name or you can skip this if the list is moving within the same site

Navigate to the new server or the site collection, Click on site actions and
site settings. On the site settings page click on the List (Or site) templates

On the List template gallary page select upload  and enter the template file name
that was created previously.

Once it's uploaded, navigate to the site you want to create  the site or the
list. Click on create, on the create page click the template link (uploaded
template will be there).
