Zachariah, thanks for your replies.
I will try that code, and see what happens.
I don't think there are any 'ppgal_' tables in my old database
I temporarily disabled the gallery so that people wouldn't post new images and totally mess up the transfer.
There are no gallery products listed .... and anything that was listed, I tried disabling, and still no good! I'm wondering if any of the templates had custom code in ...? I tried reverting the memberinfo code ... but that reverted to an old 2006 file.
Will try these things later, and post back again.
Thanks so far.
