I am trying to copy a list from one web app to another web application .All the list items are copying fine except for Contact Details (which is column of type person).This column is showing empty . Can anyone suggest me how to make this work



You may have to use EnsureUser and pass AccountID for target list item.

For example,

[Microsoft.SharePoint.SPUser]$spuser = $spWeb.EnsureUser("domain\username")
$spListItem[$newSMTName] = $spuser
