I have a list in the parent site and I want to copy the items to its subsite.

Is it possible? Is it possible to only copy some items that are fulfill some criteria?

Thanks a lot!

    Yes it is possible but when do you need them to copy? I mean at what point in time? OOB I don't think its available but can be done by simple coding, either a Timer Job or Visual Web Part if you want to handle it manually on a button click or something! Commented Nov 22, 2012 at 10:12

  • If the Publishing Feature is on. You can use Manage Content Source from Site Action. Select the items to be moved, use the Move/Copy Options and choose the site where you want to move ur content.

I think that you could export the list via powershell and import it in the subsite. This link should answer your question: Link

I would first export and import all items. Afterwards you can create a view based on your criteria and delete not needed items.
