Hi,

I didn't test but it should be compatible.

BUT you can't add data from one database to other. You can just overwrite one but other one. (and lost of course the overwrited one)

Or you can use text file to import data by quote manager.

Regards

The database files are not compatible, but you can export data from the MC QuoteManager (File > Export) and import it into the MCDT QuoteManager. You cannot just replace the database files, they are incompatible.
