Reparenting a list

Jul 8, 2011 at 12:06 PM


I have a list called Asset List which I would like to transfer to my production server.  The list will be in a new location to where it is on the development server.

I have exported the list successfully however when importing I get the error:

Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException: The file Lists/Asset List cannot be imported because its parent web .............. does not exist.

I have unticked "Retain object IDs and locations".

I was under the impression that it was possible to import a whole list to a new site.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,
