Importing Wordpress db to new site causes wp_commentmeta error

Hi Everyone,

I am having issues importing a wordpress db into my new hosting site.

I did import a non-wordpress db just fine so I know the user has permission.  Yesterday I imported a wordpress db into another website on the same hosting just fine after I edited the db with the correct name of the new db and character set.  

I read on a related post on this site that since wp_commentmeta is at the beginning seems the whole script is failing.  

Looking at the error message:
USE `mar3a_dawordpress;

-- --------------------------------------------------------

--
-- Table structure for table `wp_commentmeta`
--

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `wp_commentmeta`;
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `wp_commentmeta` (
  `meta_id` bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `comment_id` bigint(20) unsigned NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
  `meta_key` varchar(255) DEFAULT NULL,
  `meta_value` longtext,
  PRIMARY KEY (`meta_id`),
  KEY `comment_id` (`comment_id`),
  KEY `meta_key` (`meta_key`)
) ENGINE=MyISAM  DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8 AUTO_INCREMENT=2163 ;

--
-- Dumping data for table `wp_commentmeta`
--

INSERT INTO `wp_commentmeta` (`meta_id`, `comment_id`, `meta_key`, `meta_value`) VALUES
(2010, 595, 'akismet_pro_tip', 'discard'),
(2011, 596, 'akismet_result', 'true'),
(2012, 596, 'akismet_history', 'a:4:{s:4:"time";
MySQL said: Documentation

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near 'wp_commentmeta`
--

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS `wp_commentmeta`;
CREATE TABLE IF NOT E' at line 1

I am wondering if the askimet entries are giving me problems as the wordpress db I imported yesterday did that have those, much smaller wordpress site,  I need to deactivate the plugins before I export.

Thanks for your assistance.

Upon working with the new hosting sites support we realized the wordpress db I was using was corrupt.  I exported a new one from the old hosting site and it imported fine.
