Custom Template Question

  Asked By: Palak    Date: Nov 04    Category: MOSS    Views: 15030

tasked to import the tempalte into MOSS 2007.

the templates from Microsoft. But, when I go to add a new site, the

Is there issues of creating a Site Template in SharePoint 2003 and
using it in MOSS 2007?
