Populate a form library from import? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all -

    Is there an easy way to populate an empty form library from an import source (it could be anything like a delimited text file, database, spreadsheet).

    The initial solution that comes to mind to a newb like me is just to use a list (and custom list form) and just copy / paste from Excel into data-view grid in SharePoint; but, I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask here in case we could use the advanced Form Library.

  • A form library will be based on xml files. Each file is likely to have its own data. You could edit a library in datasheet view and use excel-like functionality but not as simple import.
