# 896 UpgradeTable Method not Working Properly when Upgrading 2.x Tables

There are two problems with 3.00 in terms of the UpgradeTable method. The two problems are that the free-record chain would get corrupted and any minimum, maximum, or default value validity checks for BCD fields that were a whole number greater than 9 would be truncated. For example, if you had a maximum value defined for a BCD field of 100 it would get truncated to 1.

You should not use the original 3.0 UpgradeTable to upgrade any existing 2.x or lower tables. If you have already upgraded your tables using the original 3.0 release, you should use 3.01 to repair the tables so that the problems caused by the upgrade are fixed.
