I can only paste one row at a time from an Excel sheet (.xls) into a datasheet view of a custom sharepoint list. The columns match exactly and all of the column types are set to "single line of text".

All rows paste successfully if done one at a time, the error only occurs if multiple are selected. This has worked previously but for some reason I get the below error message:

Make sure following:

  • excel table and your datasheet view line up exactly.
  • Don't have any "Created by," "Attachments" or "Last Modified" fields on there.
  • Make your selection within Excel, and then in datasheet, ONLY click into the top, leftmost field, (rather than making a paste selection)
