Export/Import error : Value does not fall within the expected range RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    My environment is MOSS2007. I was trying to export import my SharePoint site(SPWeb), its works good with site which were created using built in template but not with custom template. For me it getting following error. Not sure why, the steps I did.

    1. Full Export site http://server/site1 


    2. Export change only site http://server/site1 


    3. Create new site http://server/site2 using template used to create http://server/site1.


    4. Import full exported file at step1 to site  http://server/site2


    5. Import change only exported file at step2 to site  http://server/site2

    Getting error:  Value does not fall within the expected range

    Note: All the steps work good if I use out of the box template

    Full Error:

    FatalError: Value does not fall within the expected range.
