  • Multiple Updates From the Same Board

    I am importing an smf board to vb. Everything imports well. However is the imported set up to only do one import?

    FOr example, I imported 1-5000 users. My smf board is still active so when I run the import again because more people joined (1-5100), members 1-5000 get reimported along with 5001-5100. Is there a way to import 1-5000 and then 5001-5100 without over writing 1-5000?

    I can't start a new session because it counts 1-5000 as new members, which they aren't.

    Is it safest to just run 1 big import of all the users (and other data) when I finally close my smf board down? I'm concerned with duplicate entries.

    No, you cannot do partial imports. You will need to close your SMF forums and do a complete import.
