How do you copy multiple list items from one list to another?

Jump to solution

All the list items from one list to another existing list. Both lists have the same structure including lookup fields. How do I do this? I am using Nintex 2010 and SharePoint 2010.

Hi,

Could you have all the ID's of the items that you need to create in a collection variable? Then add For-Each loop. Add action to Copy item. For the where condition you can choose ID = Workflow Data (Id from the For Each condition). The loop will ryun through all the ID's and create them in the list. Hope it helps.

A for loop seems to be the only option.  Be cautious, though, it is quite slow in processing.  It takes over 6 hours to process a couple thousand records on one list moving to another using the for loop.
