I use Tridion Content Porter 2009 - Build When exporting content (components) from environment A, it will automatically import the publication properties/metadata on environment B. Such as: - Publication path - Publication URL - Images path - Images URL

I mark all possible checkboxes to exclude items during the export and import. I wonder... is there a way to skip or avoid importing publication properties/metadata when importing to environment B?

After selecting your items to import, right-click on each Publication that is now checked and select "Selected children only." This will stop Content Porter from importing the Publication itself (along with its metadata):

Content Porter - Selected Children Only
