Support Databases

New versions of the program will now prompt you to automatically download support databases when it opens if they have been added or changed since you did a complete install. The new file will have a updated version number as part of its name.

This download prompt will only occur when a file structure or content has changed, and there is no way to maintain backward compatibility.  Most of these files allow you to set rules for operation, or coding for display of common data sets.

If you have edited the file on your own, do not download the new file until you can save your old file.  Then you can compare the two databases, and see whether the structure has changed (in which case the old version will no longer work), or just the definitions.
