I don't believe this can be done through Dreamweaver, but perhaps someone will prove me wrong (it's happened before).

What I've always done in this situation is dump the database into a text file . . .

->     mysqldump dbname > dbname.txt

. . . and then imported on the destination server . . .

->     mysql dbname < dbname.txt

If you're using something like phpMyAdmin (preferably on both ends), you can use it to dump and then to import - a bit simpler.

I didn't provide the accepted solution (someone else did) but you may find something useful.

humeniuk is right though, there is no native way to do this.

i actually just realized today that i could just leave my database on the  host and still test my site locally, so i'll  do that, unless that's not recommended.

thanks for the help.
