How does SQList work?

How AxioWorks SQList works

SQList sits between SharePoint and SQL Server, creating a continuous sync between the two. It takes unwieldy SharePoint data and turns it into easy-to-manage SQL tables.

After a simple set up process, SQList continuously exports your SharePoint lists and SharePoint document libraries to your database or multiple databases. This gives your organisation instant access to a wealth of real-time business intelligence, so you can:

  • Send valuable SharePoint data to Power BI, SSRS and other BI tools.
  • Query live SharePoint data from SQL Server.
  • Integrate SharePoint data with other systems and apps.


Exporting your SharePoint lists and document libraries to SQL Server could not be any easier, it only takes a few steps:

1) Access
