[EventCalendar] Import calendar entries from other blog

I think what you're missing is the "Add DROP TABLE" on your EXPORT.
That creates the SQL that will drop the table so that you can re-add it to the export file that you run to import the data into the other site/database.

I remember reading about that as an option in moving your wordpress site when I first started looking at wordpress about 6 months ago.  
And, I have a test site, and hadn't remembered that the wp_ec3_schedule table wasn't moved over by the normal wordpress export.  So, I just looked and it had only  88 rows, I just imported an export with Add DROPPED TABLE and it went to the full 118 rows.

Give it a try.

Hello everybody,

I've been struggling with the import of calendar entries from one blog to another.

I have one site which is going to be closed down and want to migrate the content to a new site for archiving purposes. The new site is also set up with ec3.

However I could not find a way to merge or join or import the table through MyPhpAdmin, which looked like the best way - I get an error message stating that it will not insert the data because a table already exists (of course I want to keep the existing table).

Getting the actual posts is a "piece of cake" via the export/import options in wp, but it seems I have to manually re-enter all calendar entries.

I spent quite a few hours searching for an answer, but it seems I'm not able to ask the right question. So, I'm very thankful if someone has any ideas how to solve this.

Best wishes, Alf
