Should unexpected version chains appear, for example, after importing data from another database, there is a tool in the Database Manager that can be used to restructure the chains.  

Note: The swDatabaseManager application is not for general distribution and should only be used by an authorized system administrator.


  • Server and database compatible version of swDatabaseManager.exe
  • The SystemWeaver server is stopped
  • Sole access to the database during update

Tip: We recommend the restructuring is run on a comparable test server first to review the results and test out the functionality as well as to confirm how long the script will take to run.

  1. Stop the server.
  2. Open the swDatabaseManager.
  3. Select the database type and file.
  4. In the field below the Resequence version chains button, enter the ID of the library where you want to restructure the version chains.

  5. Click Resequence version chains. The log window will indicate when the script is completed.

Once completed, the version chains will look reasonable again.
