Site Column RRS feed

  • Question


     I am using SharePoint 2007 Enterprise Edition.

    I already have a lit with many columns. This list was developed by a third party,

    Can I make exiting column of this list into a site column. This list is already in top level

    Site of the portal.

  • Custom columns are not exposed as "Site Columns" so you would have to create the Site Columns and Content Types that you want and then assign the content type to the list.  It really is a better solution than creating columns ad-hoc.

    If the list already has data in it, then it may be too late or be too much trouble.
