Another YaBB2.5AE to SMF conversion script error - Help request

Hi there,

When running the conversion script I get the following failure:

QuoteNotice: Undefined index: announ_cat in C:\sites\archiefamily\smforums\yabb24_to_smf.php on line 796

Notice: Undefined index: announ_cat in C:\sites\archiefamily\smforums\yabb24_to_smf.php on line 798

This query:
INSERT INTO `smf`.smf_boards
(name, description, countPosts, boardOrder, memberGroups, ID_CAT)
VALUES ('Member Introductions', 'Please introduce yourself and tell us a little about yourself, what you do and some of your back ground.', '1', '1', '', '');
Caused the error:
Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'ID_CAT' at row 1

I don't know what that means, I suspect it has something to do with the data found in the ID_CAT column but as I don't write code I am not sure.  I installed a fresh copy of YaBB2.5AE in another directory and built a few members with a few categories and boards and converting that test forum went smoothly, so I suspect the failure has something to do with the way I named my Categories in my old forums, most of the categories are name as such:  example_cat.

Can anyone assist?

Thank you.

Did you run all the YaBB Maintenence functions beforehand?

Hmmm, my gut reaction is it hasn't imported the categories properly.

How big is your forum?
