How to create a List in SharePoint 2010 ?

Howdy Reader,
Welcome to my blog! Today, we will be discussing on what is List in SharePoint and how we can create it using SP 2010.


A SharePoint list is a container for information, similar to a very simple database or spreadsheet. Using a list is the most common way to manage information in a SharePoint site. In a list, data is gathered in rows, and each row is known as a list item. A list can have multiple columns also known as properties, fields, or metadata. So a list item is a row with data in those columns.

Lists where each item contains a file (and, in the other columns, data about that file) are called libraries in SharePoint.
