Thanks for the helpful post Christoph :)

But it seems I just made a fatal mistake from just "trying" as others 
suggested.  I pressed import, and selected the tables, and now I lost 
the whole database and all its data.  I had exported a backup of the 
database before I tried this, but now there seems to be problems when I 
try to restore the backup.  So I completely lost my website that I spent 
2 years on.  I hope my host has a website backup...  but this is what 
you get from just "trying" I suppose... :-/
