combine existing part lists to new one?

Question

I have several part lists that made sense when inventorizing loose parts that came in from different buys.
Now i would like to combine them all in one bigger list, as the separation makes no sense anymore.

Is there a way to do this other than re-assigning each part manually (which would be very tedious)?
My last resort thought was to export them as csv and re-import them to the new list, but maybe there is a official way and i just have not found it yet?

Thanks for your help
Tom

Hi, Tom, good to meet!

There is no "Add Part Lists" function, so the csv method is the official one: export both lists, create new list, import both with append. Do check, if a part exists in both lists, that the system properly adds both quantities. I think it should work that way, but I never checked it.
Let us know the results, will you?

Take care,
Simon

Thanks for the feedback, i just did that now ...
– export the lists to rebrickable-CSVs
– create a new empty list
– import them with no conversion and with the "append" command
– check if part sums are the same (overall sum, i didn't check each lot) which was accurate.
   Overall it had 2601 parts and definitely some were overlapping (like black technic pins), so the system added them up correctly.
– cross fingers and delete the old lists :-)

so i can confirm this works.
