Copying a survey from WSS to portal

I need to copy a survey from a WSS to a Portal area. I tried saving the survey
to the WSS template gallery and then uploading to the portal template gallery.
The upload to the portal template gallery was successful, but the new survey
template does not show up when I try to create it. Any idea what might be

You can't move a list template  from one site definition to another. Todd
(http://www.mindsharpblogs.com/todd) talks about a way to crack open the stp
file and change the site definition I'd to make it work.

Have you tried saving  the template  as an .stp on your desk top and then use
stsadm to add it to the approriate portal?

No; I'll give that a try...................

List template  definition between WSS and SPS are different, therefore you cannot copy  an existing WSS list template to the portal  (Or at least I have not been successful doing so).

Or you could just recreate the survey. Sometimes in situations like
these recreation can go much faster than figuring out to make it work.
