I'm migrating my JEvents data from a broken site to a new, live one - I'm looking for a way to export the events from the BACK end, into some sort of file that I can then Import into the new site, also from the back end.

I realize there's an iCal Export, but the current site is rather messed up - the data is there in the Joomla DB, and I can access the Admin section, but the front end of the site is completely non-functional (and I've already lost most of my hair trying to fix it...).

Is there any way to export the current data (Events, Categories, etc.) into a tidy package, and then import it into the new site? This is a feature I'd LOVE to see... even if this wasn't a migration issue for me, it's always good to know you can take your data with you when upgrading components, etc.

Thank you!

as far as I am aware no...

You might want to look at using Akeeba backup?

or using phpMyAdmin to do a manual backup of the database tables.
Feel free to PM me if you would like Custom Installs or Joomla! related work for a competitive quote.

The backups work, but it's restoring it to a new / different site that I'm looking for. If, for example, I wanted to copy a calendar but not the whole site, that would be ideal.

You can do a table dump on the jevents tables usuing phpmyadmin abnd then reimport BUT you will need to re-marry the category ids when you do this since they will be different between the 2 sites.
