Moving form libraries from SP 2003 to 2007

  Asked By: Pankaj    Date: Sep 21    Category: MOSS    Views: 1203

I work in Customer Services for my company. Our IT department is
implementing Sharepoint 2007 server and I have five very large form
libraries (InfoPath forms) in a 2003 WSS which are used as a Knowledge
Base for system problems and resolutions, we call it eSolutions. Our IT
department wants me to migrate them all to the new server.

My problem is that when I do a multi-file upload from the new v3 WSS I
become the "originator" of all the eSolution forms. I would like the
original Engineers to maintane their respective credit for creating and
or resolving their eSolutions. The Engineering and Product Support
departments have MBO's (manage by objectives) around how many
eSolutions they have resolved.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, my IT department is clueless.

this, or a simple ready to go free tool for just exporting and

Then again, all you might need is just to export and import the raw

This seems like a good start for what I was looking for. And I'd
love to hear about its new versions in future.
