    I am 90% sure (I am at work) that it works with the .68 update - but I might be wrong. You recon this is why the editor won’t load my changes into the data?

    Could be.

    What format did you use when exporting the existing data?

    I used the XML so I could open with Word (and only exported the updater sheet to update).

    The Updater is only compatible with the final database structure (whichever version that was introduced by).

    If it's crashing when importing the spreadsheet then try saving the spreadsheet as CSV and then importing. XML results in larger file sizes which might result in making the Updater unstable.

    I tried changing in the database using the CSV file, but unfortunately the software report "is not compatiable with database editing" which I fail to fully grasp why. Any thoughts?

    In one of the game patches, SI made some minor changes to the structure/format of the database. The Updater is designed to work with the final structure only and will crash if you try to load a database with the older structure. I cannot remember which patch version introduced the final structure but this is why the older version databases are incompatible with the Updater.

    Edit: It's 3.6.98 and higher. It says it on the opening screen of the Updater.

    I'm not sure I understand what you're getting at. If you can post a screenshot of the error then that would help.

    Ok so I know where you're getting this error now. Dermotron coincidentally came across the same issue. It's because the csv filenames must use the original names e.g. player_update.csv, staff_update.csv, etc.
