Associating data models with a production database

Once the product library and production database have been specified, you can associate them with specific data models by setting the Set Data Model Version property, which specifies the data models in the product library that are supported by the production database that was defined. A data model is a name given to a particular schema, or database structure. Several data models can be associated with the product library, then chosen to be used with a specific production database by setting the Current Model Version property.
