Tech Tip: Converting multi-segment databases to 4D v11 SQL
PRODUCT: 4D Developer | VERSION: 11 | PLATFORM: Mac & Win
Published On: June 12, 2008

How many segments does 4D v11 SQL support? None! Well, technically 1. The datafile in 4D v11 SQL is a single file and is no longer limited to 2GB in size.

Keep the following in mind when converting to 4D v11 SQL:

  • Data segments will be grouped into a single file at the time of conversion.
  • Conversion will keep a copy of the data file and will merge all segments into a new data file.
  • Make sure that there is enough room on the hard drive to complete the conversion.
  • The conversion will fail if there is not enough space for the process.
