extract thread from aVbulletin database

I need to extract some thread that was deleted in a bad move from the backup database an pull in the working database.

There is a neat way to do it?

I have located the thread in the backup database.

Run the following queries changing 777 to the threadid of the deleted thread.

FROM thread7
WHERE threadid = 777)


FROM post7
WHERE threadid = 777)
Before you do this - backup, backup, BACKUP! And, even better, try it on your test site first!!!!

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Thanks, I want to extract it from the test site (where I have the backup database deployed) and to copy it to the real database (another copy of the real database) and then copy to the real working database..
