I am trying to implement a user migration with the migration module but am getting this error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function count() on a non-object in E:\wamp\www\website\sites\all\modules\migrate\includes\migration.inc on line 946

here is my migrate class:

abstract class CakeBaseMigration extends Migration {
  public function __construct($arguments) {

    $this->team = array(
      new MigrateTeamMember('Chris', '[email protected]',

    Database::addConnectionInfo('for_migration', 'default', array(
      'driver' => 'mysql',
      'database' => 'databasename',
      'username' => 'username',
      'password' => 'password',
      'host' => 'localhost',
      'prefix' => '',


class CakeUserMigration extends CakeBaseMigration {
  public function __construct($arguments) {

    $this->description = t('Lagacy cakePHP system customers');

    $query = Database::getConnection('default', 'for_migration')
    ->select('customers', 'c')

    $this->source = new MigrateSourceSQL($query);
    $this->destination = new MigrateDestinationUser();

    $this->map = new MigrateSQLMap($this->machineName,
        array('id' => array(
          'type' => 'int',
          'not null' => TRUE,
          'description' => 'Account ID.'

    $this->addFieldMapping('username', 'name');
    $this->addFieldMapping('pass', 'password');
    $this->addFieldMapping('mail', 'email');
    $this->addFieldMapping('created', 'modified');


running the drush command drush migrate-audit --allsays that that cakeUser is missing a source and destination.

I don't get it, Setting the database and running the query at devel/php returns the expected rows from the database.

Any help on this would be fantastic :)

It seems the problem was the files not saving properly after I updated them, The code I posed above seems to be working ok now.
