Copying sites with FP Data View WebParts sometimes fails

  Asked By: J    Date: Jan 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1606

Copying sites from development to production environment can be tough

select="/list[@id='{AB368D6C-7EAD-46F8-8865-AF1053F0BAFE}']" ...

url or Title)
<dsp:dsQuery select="/list[@name='announcements']"
instead of the ID

any help will be appreciated.
