Question:
How does the compatibility concept of the Transport Case work?
Answer:
The Transport Case is used to transport (copy) objects between different Automation Engine systems or different clients. In general, it’s always upward compatible and never downward compatible.
That means that from one of the versions 10.0, 11.x and 12.x you can transport objects to the same or higher version, never to a lower version.

Here is a table which lists all possible constellations and the compatibility status:

Note: There is the same behavior for XML – Export and Import!

In case an incompatible transport is loaded, one of the following error messages will appear:

U00021178 Diese UCDBUP hat Step Nummer &01. Aktuelle Eingabedatei benötigt &02 oder höher.
U00021178 This UCDBUP has step number &01. Current input file requires &02 or higher.
U00021178 Ce UCDBUP a un numéro de step &01. Le fichier actuel requiert &02 ou supérieur.

U04005869 Die vorhandene Version der Exportdatei '&01' ist mit der aktuellen Version '&02' nicht kompatibel!
U04005869 The existing version '&01' of the export file is not compatible with the current version '&02'!
U04005869 La version existante '&01' du fichier d'Export n'est pas compatible avec la version actuelle '&01' !
