thanks for the info. I went and actually read the help text on the import/export screen where it states:

==========

You may import Zope objects which have been previously exported to a file, by placing the file in the "import" directory of your Zope installation on the server. You should create the "import" directory in the root of your Zope installation if it does not yet exist.

Note that by default, you will become the owner of the objects that you are importing. If you wish the imported objects to retain their existing ownership information, select "retain existing ownership information".

===========

does this mean I create a directory named 'import' at the instance home? (what is the 'root' of my zope installation?)

Acording to ObjectManager source this exception is raised because you're
suplying a path with a directory component (some/dir/InfoTechnical.zexp)

     def manage_importObject(self, file, REQUEST=None, set_owner=1):
         """Import an object from a file"""
         dirname, file=os.path.split(file)
         if dirname:
             raise BadRequestException, 'Invalid file name %s' %
escape(file)

What's the difference between private knowledge and public knowledge?
