My God! 2-way Sync between excel and WSS is GONE!?!

October 28th, 2006 | Categories: SharePoint

I love the new Microsoft Office 2007. It really has a lot of improvements. But now I have a problem. I’m used to exporting a list into excel, making advanced editing there and then synchronizing the data back to the SharePoint list.

But soon I realized (after a long search) that the button to synchronize data back to SharePoint is GONE!

Thanks to my friend, Pedro Serrano for confirming that fear… Here’s a post in his blog. I’ve already installed a Send a smile tool and sent couple of frowns because of this functionality depreciated. Some of the solutions I’m using are built based on this functionality. Please, MSFT, bring it back.
