Subject Interested question

Good day

I am asking this out of interest , as we have already made changes to get
around it.

The question :
If a older database (Interbase 5.6) has invalid columns or table names as in
MONTH and TYPE in the database, why does FireBird allow the database to be
without ANY errors and a database VALIDATION comes back with NO errors ??

Does the system not suppose to stop a invalid database to be restored ??

Thanks in Advance for any feedback

Yours Sincerely

Johannes Pretorius
