Move SharePoint 2010 Survey to New Location

How can I move a survey from one subsite to another within the same site collection? This requires an OTB (Out of The Box) solution, no code or 3rd party apps.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,
which SharePoint edition?
Does "No Code" include "No Powershell"?
Thanks.

No code means no powershell, yes. I believe this can be done either using "Content and Structure" or saving the Template with all of its data as a template.

Hi,
then I would use the Export / Import functionality either from Central Admin or Powershell (prefered):
- Export
Export-SPWeb -Identity "https://yoursiteurl" -Path "C:\Exports\MySurvey.cmp" -ItemUrl "/lists/yoursurvey" -IncludeUserSecurity -IncludeVersions All

Open in new window

Documentation from MSDN

- Import
Import-SPWeb "https://yoursiteurl/subsite" –Path "C:\Exports\MySurvey.cmp" –UpdateVersions -Overwrite -IncludeUserSecurity

Open in new window

Documentation from MSDN

Note:
This will only be possible when there is no change in the name of the survey list.

Content and structure will not work as you can only move list items :-(

Powershell is not OTB but thank you, I do appreciate the input.

Hi,
thanks for the points but just my 2ct:
Powershell (SharePoint Management Console) is one of the two command line tools for SharePoint administration (besides STSADM). Therefore the above mentioned commands are Out-of-the-Box commandlets for import and export.
Powershell coding in my understanding means that I create custom code / variables / custom functions / custom logic to do some task - not just calling an existing function.
Some tasks which are visible through Central Administration can also be done through a Powershell one-liner, some tasks you only can do through Powershell as there is no UI implemented (neither Central Admin nor Site Settings).

For the import / export:
You can also use the pages in Central Administration for export (there is no UI for importing :-)):
Central Administration -> Backup and Restore -> Export a site or list
