List Hierarchies

Hi Team,


I have a question with regard to the use of List Hierarchies , I am trying to import data into two lists List A and List B where List A is parent of List B.


There are certain list items in List A which are also in List B

Eg: List A has list value dt and List B also has dt.


When I try to import from a file List B is not getting data of dt under List A dt. Due to this my import is providing me with lesser number of records.


But when I try to add the child manually into the list its getting added.


Any suggestions is helpful in this regard.

Hi vinaymohan

You should consider using List B as numbered list.

See below articles for reference:

If you insist on using regular lists then you should distinct child item from parent e.g. by using characters like dash or underscore.

Re: List Hierarchies

Thanks for the reply. I had also planned on using Numbered list but since there were multiple parent hierarchy and child hierarchies, I used a unique identifier for each level by adding a prefix and fixed the issue. Thanks for the help again
