How can I migrate list with lookup fields from sharepoint 2010 to sharepoint online

2 Answers 2


First, we need to have an inventory of all lookup lists in the environment - probably we can use the ShareGate tool for this reporting purpose.

Then, using any of the third-party migration tools ShareGate, Metalogix, etc. migrate the parent list (dependent list) first then migrate the main list.


Consider using SharePoint Migration Tool, which allows you to migrate lists with lookup fields.

You will need to migrate all lists at once so that it carries the lookup connection from SharePoint on-premises to Online.

Individual migration for lists with lookup fields is not supported for the time being.
