Batch Descriptor File 

To specify the batch descriptor file to migrate folders, files and list items from one SharePoint list to another SharePoint list:

1.

The Batch descriptor file step appears as shown below:

2.

Click (...) button to specify the batch descriptor file. The reference file can be any one of the following file formats - Comma delimited (CSV), Microsoft Excel (XLS) or Text file (TXT).

3.

The batch descriptor file will automatically be extracted once the file name is specified. If you are using a Microsoft Excel based batch descriptor file, select the sheet name to use from the drop-down.

4.

The current site is the site added or specified for migration by the user. XPlica will commence the migration process from this site. Select the appropriate option to create the top-level site by selecting the option buttons (Yes/No).

5.

The target SharePoint site features are the features that are available (deployed) in the target SharePoint site. Select the appropriate option to activate the target SharePoint site features as in the source SharePoint site by selecting the option buttons (Yes/No).

6.

The top-level folder is the folder added or specified for migration by the user. XPlica will commence the migration process from this top-level folder. Select the appropriate option to create the top-level folder by selecting the option buttons (Yes/No).

7.

By default, XPlica expects the destination folder location to exist in SharePoint. If the destination folder is not available in the destination location, XPlica fails to migrate the file / list item to the specified folder in SharePoint. You can change this behavior by selecting the option Create unavailable folder hierarchy if the destination location does not exist.

In this case, XPlica will automatically create the unavailable folder hierarchy (folder and sub-folders) in destination SharePoint during migration process. After creating them, it will commence the migration to the required folder in SharePoint. By using this option, you can simply avoid the error message 'Unable to locate destination folder with the specified URL' reported in Activity Log Viewer, since XPlica will take care of creating the new folder structure in the destination location.
