When you created your custom  display form  I suspect you used a dataform web
part. When you create a dataform web  part it embeds the GUID of the list  in
the XSLT code used by the web part. But when you export the list to another
site the GUID changes, so the web part  can no longer open  the referenced
list in the new site. Take a look at the following BLOG article on how to
update the list IDs (GUIDs) after exporting a site  or list.

it was really helpfull i figured out a way by retainig my
GUID's while importing site  through API code and it worked for me.

I just wanted to know that is there any way to backup / Restore site using any
API code in MOSS2207

STSADM Export/Import does not retain the GUIDs, but STSADM Backup/Restore does
retain the GUIDs. But if you retain the GUIDs make sure that you restore the
new site  to a different Web Application (content database) or you will have
issues. You can't have two things in the same database that have the same GUID.
