I have some list values (which are currently calculated values) in List A. I would like to transfer some of these values to list B. The values are currency - it is sort of a costing sheet. I am hoping a workflow will be the solution. I have found solutions from for within the current list but not transferring from one list to another.

Example below:

LIST A Total Accommodation - calculated currency field Total Transport - calculated currency field Total Backfill - calculated currency field Total Incidentals - calculated currency field Total Resources - calculated currency field

LIST B Total Accommodation - currency field Total Transport - currency field Total Backfill - currency field Total Incidentals - currency field Total Resources - currency field

Here is a cut down of what I have done and is working - I found that Create List item worked where Update list did not (for my example I have left off Total Backfill, Total Incidentals and Total Resources - just to simplify).

So I created the new list - I then had to add in the other fields I was collecting data from...the process looks like this.

If your list is in the same site collection, You can do a workflow like this 

Create item in Test list A
  • My list is in the same site collection If I create an item in Test list A - I cant see how this is going to transfer to list B

  • I do now have a further problem. I can get the value - but I need to marry it up with a specific item ID. I will include more detail above in my original question.
