Thank you Brian. I have not used CI but have done content staging - typically from DEV forward. This was as case of building a local instance from scratch and synching. Had not considered performing a stage back down to my local PC but that should work as well. Incidentally, the import worked. Seemed to time out and get stuck but that may be because I had my local instance as http and the DEV site was https. Once I set my local IIS to https I was able to access the site.
