I'm new to phpMyAdmin and I'm wondering if someone can tell me how to 
import data to a specific database from an externally-configured SQL 
database. I've tried doing this by selecting the specific (empty) 
database that is already configured in phpMyAdmin for a ZenCart 
internet shopping software application and then requesting an import of 
data by browsing to the external database. However, when I do this, the 
software creates a separate database within phpMyAdmin, rather than 
importing data directly into the fields already assigned by the 
original php database. I'm sure there's a simple answer!
