Manual Update to Joomla 4 Site was created by kautrand
Looking to rebuild an existing 3.10 site in J4 instead of doing a migration. Can I import the existing CB database into the new site, if so, how.

Do you plan on moving over your users as well? That's where things get tricky as you're then dealing with migrating Joomla tables too. For CB it's just a matter of exporting tables prefixed with _comprofiler, _groupjive, and _cbsubs then importing them to your new database.

To move your Joomla users you need to also export and import _users, but that won't be up to date with Joomla 4 structure so you'll probably only want to export the data and not structure of _users. You'll also need _user_usergroup_map so they don't lose their usergroups and if you're using custom usergroups you'll also need _usergroups and _viewlevels.

Easiest approach is probably to make a clone of your site, upgrade it to Joomla 4, then move the database data to a new site so all the table structures and data will be up to date.
