1) No list in my entire site collection is over 2000 items.

2) Throttling for lists is set to 5000 items.

Why, when I export my site collection and import into my development farm, do I receive a List View Threshold error?

I've done this process a million times and now it's not working...Its driving me nuts!


The problem ended up being the "List View Lookup Threshold" instead of the "List View Threshold" as the error stated. Once I upped the lookup threshold from 12 on both my live and dev environments, it worked like a charm.
