As some of you will have read in my other posts recently i have been having a bad time with dataflow. Import & Export wouldn’t work at all and the site keeps losing database connection.

So after reading posts and trying several of the suggestions i decide the best way was in do a refresh install using my other domain, then i can reverse the redirect from the broken site to the new....

Sounds simply?!!

However as i can’t export from the old site and i don’t want to do a full database transfer in case there is something in it that is causing the issues, and i can’t just redirect the new site to read from the old database how do i ......

transfer just the customer, product info and category info from the database into a sql file.

In short which tables do i need?
