Hi Joe,

There is no way of 'porting' the TRUE database back to pre-v15. You can
save a database back to version 15.0, but that's it. Like you mentioned,
with the clipboard routine back to v14.2 you'll loose all your database
constraint settings, unless you have the v14.2 database that was uprev'd
to v15 that has the settings inherent to it that you'd be clipboard'ng to.

But, look at it this way. Why would you need to go back? Certainly not to
do editing details. Anyone can download the free v15.2 viewer and would be
able to look at your board. When you make the grandios decision (and it's
WAY beyond that time) to use v15.2 DON'T look back.

Good day.
