Mass change: Library refering to list

Copper Contributor



I have a (flat) document library (of presentations) and each document can refer to a list-item (of agenda topics / minutes) - actually its title. I am happy with the structure and use connected webparts for presentation.


But I have to migrate 250 documents and think I have to edit/create each reference by hand. So 250 times: go to properties of the document, choose the field, choose one of 250 possible list-items.


Any ideas how to simplify this? Something like: Prepare in Excel, then copy-paste to grid? Will the grid autoresolve the text to item?

Where are you migrating the documents from? If you are using any migration tool, it will handle the URL reference updates to an extent* (depending on where the links are pointing)

@Bharath Arja no, i am copying plain files from a plain directory. The original files don’t have the reference…
