How can I add data from various SharePoint lists or KPIs into a single table?

Posted on 2011-10-14
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a number of different SharePoint lists in SharePoint 2007 that each display financial data. This aggregate sum for each table is then displayed as a KPI. Now I want to take these 6 different KPI values and sum them up to show a single total goal and actual for all the tables.
 I can't seem to figure out how best to do this. I had thought Excel could help, but it looks like updating data from SharePoint lists was deprecated. I saw a reference to Access 2007, but I figured I'd see if there were alternate, easier solutions. Thanks.

    Well I was hoping to be able to export to Excel, but this link - indicates that this feature is deprecated. I figured I'd see if there was another solution before looking into Access as the link suggests.

    Did you concider using the sharepoint addin to Excel ... at the end of the article ?

    Although the ability to update SharePoint lists from Office Excel 2007 is deprecated in favor of publishing and synchronizing lists using Office Access 2007, you can use the Excel 2007 SharePoint List Synchronizing Add-in to update SharePoint lists from Office Excel 2007.
