I have a SharePoint Site which I want to import my Excel spreadsheet.

I know how to import the Excel sheet, but a lot of the records in my old application have attachments to them, so is there a way to import them and still have the attachments go along with them?

Below is the example of the records and the attachments that I want also when I import the record to SharePoint.

  • Matt, are you trying to just save the entire workbook to a document library? Or do you need extra data into SharePoint columns? – jpollar Feb 4 '15 at 19:20
  • I will import the workbook in to a sharepoint list, but a lot of the records have PDF attachments affiliated with them, how would I bring in those attachments with the records that contain them? – Matt Ludwig Feb 4 '15 at 19:31
  • I don't think you can do that with a SP List. I'd first try to upload the file to a document library and see if the attachments stay intact. From there, you can figure out what to do with the data you need from it. – jpollar Feb 4 '15 at 19:37
  • Wow. That's not going to work. Too labor intensive with so many attachments. Let me get this straight...you've already got the spreadsheet importing properly...you're just trying to figure out how to manage the gazillion attachments, right? – jpollar Feb 4 '15 at 20:23
  • Are you wanting to store them separately, like in a document library folder? I think it would be cleaner that way you could just link to the attachments folder for that record. – jpollar Feb 4 '15 at 23:59
