- there are possible keyword conflicts that can cause difficulties.
- numeric/decimal fields greater than 9 digits remain as doubles
(whereas the equivalent fields created directly in a d3 database
would be created as int64).
- and other things I cant remember right now.
My recommendation is to try and rebuild the database as dialect 3
rather than converting it. This means you get to detect any
specific problems that may exist, plus it means that your database
will be more consistent.
I have an alternative backup utility (DBak) available at:
this may help, as it rebuilds the database via a script extracted
from the source database (and provides an option to change the
dialect for the destination database).
