the structure of the data base changes MacLoggerDX does the
following when it opens or merges an older version log file:
a backup of the existing log with .v007_backup001.sql
appended to the original file name in the same folder. The
appended text shows which version of the log db was backed up
and how many backups there are. You will only need this backup
if you decide to go back to the earlier version of
the old table qso_table to qso_table_v00n
(Where n is the new version).
a new table, based on the old table but with the updated
structure and name.
the old data into the new table.
the old table.
new log file will not be usable with older versions of
MacLoggerDX but the backup can be.
new log file will not be usable with MacLoggerDX HD for iPad
until it is updated, but v007 files downloaded from the iPad
can be upgraded and read on the desktop.
should all happen transparently to the end user but those of you
who are using 3rd party tools to access the database will notice
that after you open a log, the old qso_table_v007
has been converted to the latest qso_table_v008.
