comment Query returns fewer fields depending on credentials
I agree...it has to do with the Content Type since that is the only "difference" I can think of. The older system does not have a content type. All they did was create a standard document library, and then publish an InfoPath form directly to the library. The new instance has a library that inherits from the basic version and a content type with an associated InfoPath form. Why that would return a reduced set of fields for a given user...no idea...

comment How do I migrate a document library (and just the documents) with PowerShell
@SudhirKesharwani - I did. As you see in the updated posting from last week, there are two PowerShell scripts. The first one will perform the export whereas the second will perform the import. The only downside was that I could not get the import script to work 100% because I could not get the Started event to be recognized. That being said, I did port the PS scripts over to a C# console app that did work. I will post it later and you will see that the C# app is almost identical to the PS scripts except for syntax.

Ahhh. I see. In my case I moved the list instance creation and content type additions to existing lists, from the SP solution to a PowerShell script. So I deploy from VS and then run my "Set Up" script. I also have a corresponding "Tear Down" script that is run before Retracting. I guess I need to add the Column removal to the "Tear Down" script too. Thank you.

I understand that...and it makes sense. But that should only apply if the list that "uses" it actually has any data in it. In my case, the list was empty. (And yes...both recycle bins were empty.) From a development stand-point, this makes it very, very difficult to code up my solution if I need to manually go in and delete each column after retracting it.

Matching the name did not help. I found the solution and posted it.

@ArsalanAdamKhatri -- I had already tried re-deploying and even rebooted the system in-between deployments. I found the solution and posted it.

I am a developer :-) If you re-read the updated posting from last week you will see that the import custom script (via PwerShell) does not quite work because of the event handler.

@eirikb - As I stated, the normal export/import for SP does not work. It does not allow you to export just the items. The lowest level you can go is the list itself, plus views, which means the list gets re-created on import. I just want the items so I can place them into a new list.

Moving it does retain versions (along with timestamps) but the author for each version is set to the person who performs the move (me in this case). I also need the original person along with the versions and timestamp.
