M204.1700  UNIQUE fields are not allowed in files created before Release 9.0

The UNIQUE attribute has been specified for a field being defined with the DEFINE FIELD or REDEFINE FIELD command in a file that was created prior to Release 9.0 (circa 1990) of Model 204. Because UNIQUE fields require the Ordered Index feature, this is not allowed.

File manager response: If UNIQUE fields are wanted, the file must be re-created and re-loaded under Release 9.0 or a later release of Model 204.

System manager response: Contact the file manager.
