Sharepoint list - import and append

Is there a method I can use an existing spreadsheet to add a batch of new items to a pre-existing SharePoint list?

If MOSS 2007 you can open the list with Excel, make changes and save.

If SharePoint 2010, not with Excel - no longer supported.

You can use MS Access to edit and add items to the list in 2010. When in the list view, the ribbon should have a open in Access button. (It also has an open in excel button but it's read only).

You should be able to perform this action in both SharePoint07 or SharePoint2010 if you download and install “Excel 2007 Add-in: Synchronizing Tables with SharePoint Lists” to your copy of Excel 2007/2010.

In the case mentioned, it will be a little more complicated though, as from my understanding you have already got a sharepoint list, and ALSO a spreadhseet ith additional data.

You would need to export the current list as a spreadsheet; ensure it was a table, then copy and paste the data from the other spreeadheet into this newly exported one, and then syncronise back into SharePoint. You need the Add-in toget it syncronised back into SharePoint.
