Adding additional fields (and upgrading them!)
Hi:

I have been trying to add some extra fields to the Links table in version A-7, and I keep hitting an error:
In Reply To:
You should not enter anything in the 'Column Value' unless you are creating an enum field.
I am NOT entering anything in the " Column Value" field... could there be another cause for me hitting this error?

Also, getting a bit scared about the upgrade, Alex. In my pretty modified version 1.13, I use 35 or so fields... For purposes of a "painless" upgrade, should I:

1) Keep the fields in the same order... (from 1.13 to 1.2)
2) Keep the field names the same...
3) Anything I should do (as I enter the new Links fields) to make this work easy for me?

Will the new upgrade script recognize the additional fields in my databases (or can it be easily modded to?) and move the data straight across?

TIA!

Dave
