Moving documents between document libraries in MOSS 2007

There are several ways to move documents between SharePoint document libraries and one of the simplest ways to do this is to use the explorer view.
Here's a step by step reference on how to use the explorer view feature to migrate documents between document libraries.

Open the source and destination document libraries in two separate Internet Explorer windows.
Now select the explorer view

Now copy the source file by simply right clicking the mouse and selecting copy, then paste the file in the destination document library. It's important to remember that when you move documents between document libraries you lose the document version history.

Some users may experience an annoying popup when copying and pasting.

The way to turn this off is to make a change to the client's Internet Explorer:
-Open Internet Explorer
-Click "Tools", then "Internet Options"
-Select the "Security" tab
-Choose the appropriate zone
-Click the "Custom level" button
-Select "Enable" for the "launching programs and files in the IFRAME" option
-Click the "OK" button
-Click "Yes" when prompted to change the settings
-click the "OK" button
-Restart IE.

If you have any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know.
I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues, Thank you
