It seems that you want to go back in the versions of radio DJ.

Yes i do, the new Program Director wants that version, and with the same exact music that i have on air.
So is it possible

Short answer: no.

Longer answer: If program director asked me to do such a thing, I would have insulted him right then but I'll leave my opinion to myself. That is equivalent of downgrading from Windows 8 to Windows XP and asking to keep all user settings and apps. Given the fact that XP is past its end of support cycle, same as RadioDJ v0.1.3740 since August last year al least, it is insane. There are known bugs and there might be other undiscovered ones in that RadioDJ version. By going back to that version you'll be missing many functions that have been vastly improved since it was released.

If you really can't talk your program director out of this crazy stunt and still have to do it, you'll have to generate a custom database export file and exclude columns that were added in later verions of RadioDJ. MySQL Workbench can export results as SQL script including just the columns in resultset, but you should first look at differences in database structures. Database install script "database.sql" is in Sql directory of v0.1.3740 and under Setup\Sql in 1.7.x.
Note that RadioDJ v0.1.3740 stores rotations in text files, not database as in current versions.

And finally - my reaction:

Hey Andy  :D :D

Despite everything Andy says, and so it is, it can.

Setup RadioDJ v0.1.3740.
Tell the new Program Director I have set it up, so knock yourself out with the re-importing all the tracks, and Program Director do not complain that it does not work as you think, or listeners walk a way.

Just think, yes boss no boss. :hihi:

or let him read the forum how  the better the version become, and not saying he's an idiot  :bash: (but just tink it).
If he knows better it is his problem.

Jhonny

PS. And to you, backup everything.
   You're the hero at the end.

Actually, I have a question.
Why does he want an older version of rdj?
Can you/hi explain that to me, there is still a reason for this?

in version 1.74 the song title comes up in a box, and the older versions it comes up as a list

You should have started this thread by stating that you want playlist in list mode.
Although Marius explained that it is an option, a picture is worth a thousand words: screenshot with instructions.
