Note: After upgrading the data, it will no longer be recognized as civil data in SS2. If you open the DGN in SS2 and attempt to run a Civil Geometry Command you will receive the following message dialog:

Note: If you select "Yes" to upgrade the data in the file, you will not be able to reopen the file in SELECT series 3. You will receive the following message when you attempt to open the DGN, and the only option will be to exit MicroStation:
You will still be able to open the DGN in SELECT series 2 after upgrading the data; however, it will no longer be recognized as civil data in SS2. If you open the DGN in SS2 and attempt to run a Civil Geometry Command, you will receive the following message dialog:
