I currently have a list that is reaching 40k threshold, so i want to create a new list so it can break it up by area (Central, Midstate, Western). I am going to create few more lists and move the data over. Is there a way to copy over my columns into my new lists? This is all in one same sharepoint site. The reason i ask this is because alot of my columns are lookups or numeric fields..


enter image description hereMake the list a template and don't include the data. You can make new lists from this template and even add additional columns to the new lists without affecting the original.

  • how do i include specfic data? – user56323 Jun 23 '16 at 12:52
  • It is a check box on the template creation page. It is a yes or no/ all or none. You can always delete data after it is created. I never have, but theoretically, you could make a temporary template to preserve you original then remove what you don't want and make a 2nd final template. Please mark as answer if this helps. – Jammin4CO Jun 23 '16 at 13:36
