You can save ListView1 an load in to ListView2

This cod it's not created by me.

{  This Code allows you to Load/Save items & subitems of a
  TListView in a file.
 
  The Code has been extracted & adapted from
  TSmartListView 1.01, Freeware
  by Fabio De Pasquale.
}
 
uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs, comctrls,
  StdCtrls;
 
type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    ListView1: TListView;
    Button1: TButton;
    Button2: TButton;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    procedure SaveListViewToFile(AListView: TListView; sFileName: string);
    procedure LoadListViewToFile(AListView: TListView; sFileName: string);
  public
  end;
 
const
