SharePoint - Show Document Library View and DataView at the same time

I need to display two views in SharePoint for a business function that imports data and documents.  There will be a document view which is related to a document library and a dataview for parts that will go into a database.  How can I accomplish this?

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.

You can display multiple views of a library on the same page. Create a datasheet view of your library and add that view to the same page that the default view is on.

Good luck...

Glad that helped,

if the excel sheet and the SharePoint list have identical fields, you may be able to use copy and paste. That depends on SharePoint version and office version.

I do have another question regarding this.  We have a document library and we are uploading documents.  We need to use the excel spreadsheet to upload the metadata for the documents and also upload data into a dataview that will be pushed to a database.
