Posting problem w/MySQL db (4 posts)

    I've been trying to upgrade my b2 blog to WordPress. I've had a hard time of it, but finally managed to get most of an install working by adding fields to my old b2 database tables and substituting them for the new tables. Not very elegant, but it mostly works. Now I've run into a problem where new posts won't write to the wp_posts table in the database. I can make changes to the comments and categories tables just fine. I can update the categories for old posts, but I just can't get the program to write to the posts table.
    What obvious tweak am I missing here?
    Thanks for any help that floats this way.

    No, the importer didn't work. I tried it numerous times. I don't have the luxury of starting a new database.

    As usual, it was the smallest problem causing what looked like a bigger problem,
    When I created one of the fields in the modified wp_users table I accidentally included a blank space at the end of the field name. Thank goodness forphpMyAdmin.
    One positive thing about mucking around in MySQL is that I learned a bunch about how the wonderful developers put this program together. Thanks a bunch to the folks who created this new software. Your work is appreciated!
