I have created a new blank document site to put the lists in and there is no content on the site. 

The list/site is a pretty standard wss/3.0 | 1 wfe | sql 2005 setup. If I uncheck the "retain object IDs and locations" it will import fine. However I need to import another list into this site and the second list does not import and I then receive the following error:

{"Non-supported field type change.\n\nThe field cannot be changed to the new type. Please check the new type and try again."}

Any help is appreciated,

Jennifer
