    according to this report totally 56 custom template are there,but actually one custom site definition file template that's called TEST and one custom site template is there,then why it's showing whole site as custom template.

    how i can to find list of custom webpart in prescan report?

    above report are correct?and why it's showing 56 Custom template,?

    here my main question is PRESCAN report will show custom webpart details or not,if it's Yes how we can.

     

    if anybody know about this,please reply...

    thanks..

    The main function of prescan is to look at your site structure in the database and let you know which if any sites are customized. For a report on webparts, you can use the stsadm tool with the Enumwppacks option. This will list out any web part packages that have been installed. The Prescan tool is looking for custom site defs and templates not custom web parts.

     

    The reason you are seeing 56 under the custom templates, is that it is not showing how many custom templates there are, but how many sites were created based on custom templates. So you can have 1 custom template with 56 sites created using it. For more info on Prescan look at these articles:

     

     

    Also any sites edited with frontpage should show up as custom as well.

     

    Hope this helps,

  • The following post contains the step by step instructions for the upgrade including the creation of the upgrade file. Here is the link for the SharePoint teams blog entry covering this:

    That should get you where you need to be.
