I'm migrating some content from a SharePoint 2007 environment to a SharePoint 2010 environment. As it's not much, I've opted for simply recreating it and migrating it manually. In this process I've got a few large lists.
In a list with 40 columns and 1500 items, I had to use Datasheet view to view it properly. The original view in the SharePoint 2007 version was datasheet too, so not a problem there. However I did notice that a standard view was completely unusable, it just
soaked up memory and utilized one core of my dual core cpu to max, doing practically nothing. All I could do was close the IE instance.
In another list, with around 30 columns and 600 items, I noticed that the original was a standard view. So I created a standard view in SP2010 as well. However this view is quite sluggish, not at all as smooth as the SharePoint 2007 counterpart.
My quick findings are that I must use Datasheet view for all large lists in SP2010. Have you come to the same conclusions, or is there a another way of displaying large lists in Standard View?
