Thanks Tim @KTS915 . My expectations come from these screen shots.
Live Site Users Roster (ignore the user count bar…that was solved via phpMyAdmin mysql query)
Live Site Users Roster - after Export/Import (see next thread – this forum has to many posting restrictons)
You will see that none of the User Meta in the boxed area migrates.
And your comment on upgrading the standalone site to Multisite is interesting in that the first mention of this needing to be the pathway.

That makes the whole process and purchase of Pro a game-changer.
