Moving lists between SharePoint sites

Once I’d overcome the issues with user permissions outlined here I noticed that the companyweb was different to oldcompanyweb.

A lot of the metadata was missing, including version history. Turns out that this is quite the problem just using stsadm from the command line.

However, I found a great tool called SharePoint Content Deployment Wizard.

In my case, I just deleted the lists that didn’t have the data required and re-imported them using this tool though you could use it just as well to skip the whole stsadm -o export/import proceedure. Though please make sure which account you are logged in as else you may run into the problems outlined in my previous post.

Again – hope it helps!
