I use this the following script to populate a similar list 
field:

repeat for each line tCard in field "cardList"
   open card tCard
   put field "EnglishWords" & return after field 
"EnglishWordlist"
end repeat

Make sure that your field "listfield" is set to Sharedtext 
so it will show up on all cards.

Hope that helps.
