Importing a spreadsheet into a SP Online list


Ok, but this seems dumb. I can't import an Excel spreadsheet into a SP Online list. I've tried using the Add App and the Import Spreadsheet one. It complains that an ActiveX control is needed.

I've tried copying and pasting and that puts everything in the fist cell.


Maybe I'm missing something basic, but I don't  think it should be this difficult. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @Jlee_Prosci  when you are going to paste the data from the Excel spreadsheet into your list, make sure you have highlighted the whole of the first row as in my image below. You do that by clicking in the  far left column under the check symbol. It will then put the data from the cells into the columns and not just in the first one.
