  • Copy the structure file and rename as MyDB_2.4db
  • Use MyDB_2.4db to open the original data file
  • Add a second field 'MyField_2' to 'MyTable'
  • Create a record in 'Mytable' with values in both fields
  • Convert the structure file MyDB_1.4db using the same data file

During the conversion you would see the following dialog:



Note - This message is just a warning and will not affect the behavior of the database,
