Is it possible to export a list and then import the list into a doc

  Asked By: Krista    Date: Jan 13    Category: MOSS    Views: 1539

Is it possible in MOSS or WSS 3.0 to export a list and then
import the list into a document library? The existing list does not
have any attachments. If this is possible, would identical columns need
to be created in the doc library before import?

A client has a custom list  with hundreds of items in it. We are
interested in importing it to a preformatted document  library with a
Word template that contains a set of properties that are bound to the
library (so when either the Word doc  or the list is updated, the data
populates in both places).

The template I have is based on a document library. I don't know if
the same thing can be accomplished using the custom list.

Convert the list  to Excel & use Excel Services to keep the SharePoint version
and the Excel document  in synch. However, on the surface, it doesn't seem like
a wise thing to do. It's the equivalent of having "two master lists" rather
than a master and slave.

I might not be understanding the question, but couldn't you use a SPD workflow
to copy items from one list  to another if you have a slave and master type
