Hi Max,


If none of the underlying tables or locations are changed in the upgrade, then Yellowfin should not mind that the platform has been updated.


However if 2016 is a brand new installation in a new location with altered data types, it will be necessary to create a new installation of Yellowfin on top of that, and then import/export all of your content from the old instance to the new.


I would recommend looking into: http://www.yellowfinbi.com/YFForum-Migrating-Yellowfin-Guide-?thread=105088


Please note that it is highly recommended that you backup your database before making any major changes.


Please let me know if this does not answer your questions or if you have any additional concerns relating to this issue.
