I have exported Website data from Wordpress into a Linux LibreOffice  Calc file in CSV format (which cannot be opened with Calc), and then imported that CSV data  into the hosting database using PHP MyAdmin.  Is this a common method, and why is it downloading only 5 rows of data, when 7 rows appear on Wordpress Participants Database?

This message appears when PHP MyAdmin completes the import.   It ignores 2 records.

 Import has been successfully finished, 5 queries executed. (participants-database-August-12-2016.csv)

Never mind the 5 vs 7 records imported.  Solved that one.

Still wondering if this method is the best to get files from WordPress thru PHP MyAdmin to the host db.

No, it isn't. The best way would be to use PHPmyadmin on the source site to dump the entire WordPress database in SQL format then import that file at the target.

If you need to alter the data before import, SQL filters are just text so any decent text editor will do.

If you can't use PHPmyadmin on the source, then use a plugin like Backup Buddy to effect a transfer
