They are based on entirely different underlying Site Definitions. So,
you will have trouble retaining any of it. Perhaps you can export to
Excel in your Team Site and import the data from Excel in your Meeting

Let us know what you discover thru the exercise.

They told me that the site  in their present form had few imp doc libs for which the data was kept in a diff location in the form of excel files.

Therefore i decided to delete the entire site and recreate it.

But however i wanted to try your approach on my test server.

I wanted to clarify a few things when you said export to excel did you mean try exporting the data in the doc libs and lists.

I tried that and got an error saying To Export a list ,you must have a windows sharepoint services-Compatible application.

You must have Office Excel 2003 installed to export to Excel. This
approach will work  for most fields in most lists including metadata in a
document library. But Excel won't move documents in a Document Library.
It also messes up lookup fields and security oriented fields.
