    Say you have entire vbulletin databases from different versions starting from vb 3.5 to present and you wanted to some how merge them all. Is this possible with Impex?

    Like maybe create db A B C B E F G, and one by one use them as the source in Impex only importing the threads and posts?

    Will this work?

    ImpEx doesn't "merge" in that you will end up with duplicate content after importing all of those databases since they are all older versions of each other.

      they dont all necesssarily overlap ive pruned many times in between and in some cases started with 0 threads when upgrading to a new version..

          Then you can run an import to copy all of the content from a backup into your current forum.
