I'm trying to import data from an .xml file to a custom list in SP2010(created programmatically).
I'm able to create and update all fields except 'Created By' as it says that "Cannot update read only field".
Is there any way that I can update the "Created By" field? Only Programmatically
This is my XML code.
Note : I don't have user Id. I only have Display Name. I need field from xml code to be updated in SP.
