I have so many records in a custom list. How to insert a new row between two records (for example between list items with IDs 31 and 32) using browser. Could you help me with this? Thank you.

  • How do you mean 'between' two records? How are records sorted? – Slaven Semper Dec 10 '14 at 22:20
  • I want to insert a new record between already existing records which has ids 31 and 32 – Sai Dec 10 '14 at 22:25
  • Are you referring to SPListItem.Id? – Slaven Semper Dec 10 '14 at 22:26
  • Yes,But I want to do it using browser.It doesn't matter if ids changes for this list – Sai Dec 10 '14 at 22:32

    Why don't you create a new column that you can change as needed for ordering? – wjervis Dec 11 '14 at 0:31

You cannot insert list item between two list items using a browser. That would mean changing the internal ID's of list items which is AFAIK not supported.


You can always create your own custom ID column (number format) and sort on that using a custom view. Then if you need a row b/w 1 and 2 you can number it 1.5
