Thanks
If you have some knowledge of SQL queries, take a look at the thread and post table, some data in the post table can be used in the thread table and vice versa. You can create some basic queries based on those 2 tables.

If you still have copies of your database and have not finalized this import i.e. made it public yet (test environment I'm assuming) then you should start over IF you went from phpBB3 to vB4 that is. Basically vB3 is more similar and closer in nature to phpBB3, so you have access to your vB5 Connect license, which also allows download and use of vB3 and vB4 (only one at a time per domain though i.e. you can run vB3, 4, or 5 but only one not all on one domain etc etc) and can import into vB3 then upgrade to vB4.

- Install vB3, import from phpBB3 to vB3 using impex.
- Now with your data imported to vB3, you simply upgrade to vB4 .

*Anytime someone is coming from an older software, it would be best to follow this method i.e. import from older software using impex into a vB3 instance, then once data is in, simply upgrade to vB4 = less issues.

That only works if your importing a version of phpbb that is below 3.1

The move to 3.1 changed many things and these do not get brought across by impex because the phpbb importer within it has not been updated since phpbb 3.0.3
