Unfortunately the SharePoint list that is created in the
process does not take advantage of all SharePoint features.
You can see more about the problems in next article, but
in the demo below Peter gives some tips on how to make the
new list better adapted to SharePoint:
Enable Versioning, so that you can see different
versions of the list. This possibility is one of the
major benefits with having the data in SharePoint instead
of in Excel.
Change the default view from Datasheet to Standard.
Add an Edit button to the Standard view.
Make the view cleaner by not showing all columns.
Create more views to show the data from different
Add the list to the Quick Launch.
What cannot be easily fixed is that the SharePoint list
that Excel creates will not have the new experience. To
get that experience and all the benefits it provides you
need to use
the Access method.
