Hi, Marie,

Could you send the two EADs, in a zip file, Chris Fitzpatrick (chris.fitzpatrick at lyrasis.org<mailto:chris.fitzpatrick at lyrasis.org>) and me (brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org<mailto:brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org>)?  We'll investigate and then report back.  Please indicate the ASpace version for the test instance, also.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Error importing EAD file

Hi, all,

We just became members and installed ArchivesSpace. We had been using a test instance. I created two collections in the test instance and exported the EAD files before we installed the supported version. When I try to import the files back in, I get this error: "Error: undefined method `container' for #." I can import our legacy EAD files, just not the ones created in the test instance.

Any ideas?
