I beg of @lubos and/or the community, if any of you have suitably been able to “version” the manager database to determine what version of manager is the lowest version I can open each version of the database with.
What I mean by this, I want to know the lowest version number of manager I need to open any given backup. I don’t want to open a backup in any current version as I want to compare the current output of manager to the old output of manager so I can work out where have gone wrong for me.
If I open the old database in the current version:
- It will be updated with whatever structural changes have happened in that time
- Report queries and general ledger engines have changed and bring with it “new” and updated numbers.
I need to see the old numbers so I can see where things have changed.
So what I’m hoping for is a script that I can scan the manager backup and it pull whatever versioning may exist that will tell me what version I used to make it. (Yes, for the last few months I have added the manager version number to my backup file, but I never did that in the past).
@lubos, I’m hoping you can provide a tool or suitable script or header value to look for?
