SP 2010 - cut & paste questions and answers into existing "discussion" thread RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to cut and paste a slew of Q&A (from excel) to an existing discussion thread? I tried to use "Datasheet" view but it is not highlighted (allowing me too) - I have full control permissions already. Thanks for any help

  • Hi,

    Are you using IE?

    Is your site added to Trusted site in IE?

      • Click the Security Tab.  Select Trusted Sites Check
      • Click the Sites Button
      • Make sure your site is in the Trusted Zone.  If not add it. If so move on to next step

    Once out of the Sites area you are now back in the Security tab.

    1. Click the Custom Level button at the bottom.
    2. Scroll to Settings list and Mark the following settings:


    • Enable the “File Download” radio button


    • Enable the “Don’t Prompt for Client Certificate Selection when no Certificates or only one certificate exists” radio button.
    • Enable the “Drag and drop or copy and paste files” radio button
    • Enable the “Launching Programs and Files in an IFRAME” radio button
