Hello Experts,

I have a Dataview List that's populated with items.  Is there a way to change that Dataview List type to the non-Dataview List keeping it populated with the data that's already in it?

Using SharePoint 2010

Thank you.

Nope. It has to be created from scratch with the type you want. You can't even base the new view on the old one except by manually copying the settings yourself of course.
