As such, I've bought and tested the Big Board Importer and it works great.
However, two of my add-ons have included VB > XF importers as steps inside the web importer. I'd like to use these but it appears that every time I even click through on the web importer and fill out the connection strings, it starts doing something. I haven't let it spin through that process yet but the last time I let it go for a minute and my posts disappeared out of the test instance.
So, I guess my question is two fold: what does the importer do immediately after you click "go" having filled out your SQL connection string? I thought there was a subsequent page that let you actually decide what data to import - is there no way to get to that page without harming the existing, imported data?
And two, if that's indeed the case, is there a way to do what I want - to use pieces of the web importer, without touching the rest of the imported data?
