  • I am not sure,but there should not be any problem. I will just try to point out steps what exactly happens while recreating a list using list template -

     

    1. Save list as template --> it will ask File name and template name, suppose you gave "OrderList"

    2. when list is created, a page appears with message - To manage templates in the gallery, go to the list template gallery.

    3. You can check a list template name "OrderList" is created.

    4. Now, one point when you go to list template gallery, you go to Top level site. And I guess your list might be on Sub site.

    5. So go to your sub site (Where your list is located). now go to Site Actions--> Create (Add new library......)
        This will take you to another page where you will be having default options as well as new link with "OrderList".

         With this link you can recreate a new List.

     

     

    I hope this may solve your problem.

    Hi,

     

    Site Action > Create.

    The page contains your List template.

    Use it to create a list.

     

    thats it.

  • If the list-template is saved to the gallery, Go Site Actions --> Create

    You'd have option to create as list of type "Your Custom List". This way you can createlist from your custom templates

  • If what you  are missing is the items on the list, maybe it is because when you save it as a template you did not checked "Include Content"

     

    Hope it helps Smile
