Importing phpBB data into XenForo with data

I have an existing XenForo site with users and posts. I recently acquired a forum that was run on phpBB. I understand that XF has a phpBB importer, which is great.

Will importing have any adverse affects on the existing data in XenForo forum?

No. The only possible conflict would be users sharing the same emails or usernames in which case the importer will prompt you to change the conflicting emails / usernames.

Thanks Jake. As it turns out it was a SMF 2.0 forum. I used vB impex into vB 4 and then the very excellent vB 4 importer here at XF. It was a long road, but all of the posts and users have successfully transferred.
