Moving a sharepoint list from one site to another

Is there an easy way to move a sharepoint list/library from one site to another within a site collection?  The Site Content & STructure page has the MOVE action greyed out.  I tried saving it as a list template (with content box checked) but this is seemingly limited to a maximumlist size of 10Mbyte, my lists are larger than this.

As an added but perhaps linked problem, I can't import lists from Access because they are too large, even though I have increased the maximum upload within administration to 512Mb.

You can use Gary Lapointe's "Sharepoint Automation" scripts which exend the features and functionality of the STSADM commands.  Here is the specific 'export list' comand link: http://stsadm.blogspot.com/2007/09/importexportcopy-lists.html
These stsadm.exe extensions are almost a must-have in Sharepoint administration.

You could save the list as a list template without the contents and recreate it on the target site. After that, open both lists (source list and the one you just created) in the datasheet view (all fields displayed). Select all contents from the source list, copy it, and then paste on the target list.

VoilĂ  !!

If you find an easiest way, please let me know. Good Luck !

Good suggestion Douglas.  Remember, the datasheet view will work unless you have attachments on the list items.  Those cannot be copied over via datasheet copy\paste.  Document libraries, since based on an attachment, will only work for copying over the metadata.

Looks like it will do the job, but unfortunately beyond my skill level to deploy.  Thank you anyway.
