          ImpEx is an import tool, not a back up tool.

          phpMyAdmin is a administration program for databases.

            "isn't working" is a bit ambiguous, I'd need more details to be able to help.

                Have you edited the config.php file in the impex directorey to reflect your old phpbb datbase and your new target database?
