I have migrated a content Database from SP 2007 to 2010. When i check the list settings, i can see that it has been associated with a content type . But when i check it in the site content type gallery , i cannot see it. What could be the problem ??

I have to associate this content type with my Content query web part. So the web part is also not working bcoz of this.

How can i resolve this issue?

Thanks in Advance , Nikhil Kak

  • i am also facing the same problem... please can someone help !!

Content Types have introduced with the Inherit attribute which is desirable in cases if you want a specific Content Type to inherit from a parent Content Type. Make sure to include this attribute and provision the Content Types again.

Here is the more information


The destination 2010 farm needs to have the same custom features/solutions (WSPs and assemblies) must installed before running the Content DB upgrade.
