Quick Tip: Delete list items from a list

Posted by Christian Dam on July 2, 2008


It doesn’t seem there is a built-in way in MOSS/WSS to delete all list items from a list without deleting the entire list. A workaround is to save the list a a template without content, delete the list and recreate it using the template.

However, there is a gl-deletelistitem option in Gary’s STSADM Custom Extentions that can be used. It works well but it is rather slow so for large lists the template method may still be faster.
