Moving List Items with Attachments

  Asked By: Blair    Date: Feb 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 17701

I have the need to move an announcements list from one site to another. This list includes attachments -- These attachments are too large to be able to put them into a list template (with content). I thought about exporting the list to a spreadsheet and importing it to the new site, but then I'd lose the attachments.

Are there any tools to perform this function? Any suggestions?

CorasWorks Data Publisher may do this for you – I’ve never tried moving  lists with attachments, but there’s no reason why it wouldn’t be supported. You can find out more at www.corasworks.net/.../datapub.html

You may want to try the free migration utility “SharePoint Extractor and Importer”. We have tested and are going to use it for our migration project.

I do not believe so, but I'll do further testing with WSS.

I moved the list  from one portal area to another and it adopted the portal area permissions.

another limitation is that i cannot move  area1/portal1 --> area1/portal2.
