  • Help! Yahoo Groups to VBulletin 3.5

    Does anyone have any experience with doing this?

    I've gotten all of the posts from the Yahoo Groups into a MS Access database using PG Offline...

    But I am having trouble getting it from MS Access format to VBulletin.

    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks!

    Larry

    Can you explain what the trouble is ?

    Is ImpEx importing anything from the source access database ?

        The advised route is

        PG Offline (access) converted to -> MySQL Imported -> ImpEx into -> vBulletin.

        Where the access database is converted into MySQL (I can do that on request) then the MySQL database is restored on the same server as the vBulletin database and used as the source for ImpEx.

          Do all the posts go in as one username?

            No as what ever the name that is stored with the original email.

              Jerry,

              I would be interested in you helping me with this...

              There must be something that I am missing here...

              I have PG Offline (access) and have tried to convert it via MySql into ImpEx, but am not having any luck.

              What would be the best way for us to communicate?

              I can be reached via my website www.larryseyer.com or you can contact me via email at vbulletin (at) larryseyer.com

              Thank you very much for the help.

              Best to you!

              Larry

                The best thing to do, is start a support ticket from your members area then we can assist you there and keep all the details and communication in one place.

                  Are you still available for converting from PG Offline/mdb from yahoo to MySQL? I've been trying to figure out how to do that without much luck... the shareware/freeware converters only do 10 'records' at a time and with thousands of 'records' it would take forever and ever (that and I *really* don't want to shell out what the full program price is for a one shot deal...)

                    Yes, open a support ticket, and ask for me saying you need a access to MySQL conversion for an import, reference this post as well.
