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.

 

Regards

Vinay

Re: List Hierarchies

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.

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
