I need to create a custom list in Sharepoint 2007 using JQuery (only!). I'm using Sharepoint 2007. Is there any way to do it?

  • Only jQuery? No JavaScript allowed? – Danny '365CSI' Engelman Jan 12 '16 at 9:50
  • Yes only Jquery as javascript won't work in sharepoint 2007. – Naveen Jan 13 '16 at 3:33

Yes, SPServices wraps the Lists web service:


Which includes AddList:


Once the list is created, you would use UpdateList to add fields or modify other properties:


  • This is what I needed. Can I edit the column/field name using Updatelist property??? If yes please provide me example. – Naveen Jan 13 '16 at 3:36
  • did you try giving your own display name in updateList command? – Taran Goel Jan 13 '16 at 5:13
  • Giving display name works just fine:) – Naveen Jan 13 '16 at 12:53
  • Can we create the list based on list template using same method? – Naveen Jan 14 '16 at 5:20
