R – How to Populate Sharepoint MOSS 2007 Reference Data

moss, powershell, sharepoint, sharepoint-2007, utilities

I need to populate reference data in a number of custom lists across difference versions (DEV, TEST and LIVE) of the same MOSS 2007 installation. Can anyone point me towards a way of doing this? I am initially looking at using a script (PowerShell?) or tool to populate this data.

Thanks, MagicAndi.

There is the CodePlex project SharePoint 2007 Test Data Population Tool that can do this. I've only ever written my own tools to do this myself so can't vouch for it.

I haven't heard of any PowerShell scripts that can do it but they wouldn't be hard to write. Do a search for PowerShell and SharePoint and I'm sure you'll find numerous examples.
