I have an older list with a multi line plain text +append changes column. I want to migrate the items on the list to a new list.

Is it possible to migrate the column's entries to the new list while maintaining the date and user information?

Not without either a migration tool or some custom code somebody would have to write.

  • I can work with both of those but I'm not familiar with copying append change columns around, how would that work? Maybe you could expand your answer a bit.

  • You need to parse out the version history to get append-only comments. Mar 7, 2018 at 15:32
