GUID changes


Been a while...

Currently involved in a large migration of WSS v2 to MOSS. Found a thing that can be good to know. If you use the export and import actions in stsadm (WSS V3/MOSS) your lists will get new GUIDs when imported. This has consequences for dataviews (use this trick to remove the web part from the page) or custom web parts that binds to the GUID.
