Receiving an error on certain document libraries

description

Hi... on running a test to a custom doc lib I've created, it successfully creates folders but fails to copy any of the content files. Log file is attached. However, running the command on the same file directory to a document library that sharepoint creates by default with a new site works without error. The custom library uses content types, has custom fields, etc. But, in comparing the default library against the custom library, I can't see anything different that might be flagged in the importer's error messages -- so I'm not sure what the problem is. Since it appears that it might be bombing because something's returning "null", it may be that I've deleted some standard columns that this expects to find?
 
I've been through the doc, requirements, etc. and don't see anything obvious I'm missing for the importer.
 
Any clues? Help MUCH appreciated! Thanks, Dennis

Hi Dennis

Is there anything special about the document library you create?
Unfortunately I can't really deduce anyhting from the error logs.
The only thing I can think of is that it might be missing the "_Source" column. This is a Site Column that will be added to the document library automatically when you run the improter, but maybe something goes wrong. Could you check if that column is in fact there after running the importer?
