    I am not sure I understand your question properly.

    Are you trying to make a backup of your entire database or particular tables in your database?

    or

    Are you trying to restore certain tables or entire database from a .sql file?

    okay, I got you now. I do not know if what you are asking is possible. But you can always restore the tables (that have the data you want to extract) using the .sql file with you, go to your site and download the .zip file.
