with SharePoint 2010 is it possible to Export LIsts/add/amend/delete data then Import List back to SharePoint.

This would be done as part of a bigger macro which would compare the data on the downloaded List against external data. Changes would then be made and then I would like to upload the list back to sharepoint with the changes.

Possible or not?

If possible would appreciate step by step as I am not that familiar with Sharepoint

Thanks

The MS recommended way is to use Access and the MS Excel link has been 'deprecated' - but they may change their minds again :)

I don't speak from personal experience here but I believe that its possible to use the 2007 add-in with 2010 - you can download it here:-

However I don't think it provides the sort of 'round trip' you are looking for - its more a way of synchronizing excel table with a sharepoint site.

There is a third party tool here which purports to do the same thing better but I have never used it:-
