Is there Older DB Compatibility Supported?

Consultants will encounter users who possess older builds of popular databases. For example, OpenLink may provide software for Informix 7.3 systems. However, users have Informix 5. In this instance, consultants should not encourage users to download software. OpenLink's software is not backwards compatible and may not function with the older platform. Be advised - Progress databases and OpenLink's Progress software are compatible, as long as both products share the same major number. For instance, OpenLink's Progress 8 database agents will connect to most Progress 8 databases. However Progress 8 database agents will not connect to Progress 7 databases.
