Hello,

I accidently created a new Event list on a site and I should've created it on another. The members of that site has already started using the calendar and I would now like to move it to the correct subsite. How can I move the Event List from one site to the other while maintaining the data

Thanks.

Go to the list

Click settings > list settings

The choose save list as template

Give it a name and choose Include content.

Now move the STP file to the list template gallery of your other site. And create a site using that template.

If you have MOSS sometimes Manage Content and Structure will let you move a list also. But since I wasn't sure you had MOSS I gave you the long way around.

If you are using MOSS 2007 you can almost use (Manage) site content and structure. You will not be able to move the contact list, but you can create the new one and then move all content from the old list to the new one. It is very simple.

(Manage) Site content and structure can be found in the site actions or you use direct url http://yourdomain.dot/_layouts/sitemanager.aspx

You want to move a whole site Not just the events list Then you need to look at stsadm -o import and export.

My orginal answer cover that. Save the list as template and then move that file to the list template gallery of your other site.

I can create an STP but was hoping to use manage content and structure. When I go to this click the list to move copy and move are greyed out, I only have the option to delete. I've tried using sharepoint designer where I've dragged and dropped so in designer it shows a copy but when I open up MOSS in the browser it doesn't exist and it doesn't show in content and structure.
