Persisting Excluded Tables During Migrationmigration exclude tables

That description should work fine. Excluding any table(s) from being backed up will not modify the production (source) site in any way. It will exclude that entire table and its contents so it will not end up in the database dump file that stores the backed up contents.
You will have to recreate the users table on the destination site somehow/make a new one for WordPress to work though. I'm not sure if WordPress will attempt to auto-generate one if it's missing. BackupBuddy will not fill in missing data that is required but was excluded.
During ImportBuddy, it might get mad about the lack of a users table. I don't think it interrupts the process but I know it at least displays error messages/warnings.
