While uploading data file from m340 plc I am getting massage "old *.DAT file cannot be restored"

You can store ( Export) the value of the following data in a file ( .DAT & .DTX )
boolean-type located data: %Mi 
word-type located data: %MWi 
unlocated variables 
function block instances 
 
*.DAT: 
Saving PLC data to a *.DAT file is allowed for all previous data types. *.DAT contains only data blocks. 
Restoring all data blocks from a *.DAT file to the PLC is allowed if the project has not been built since the Save was done.If a build was done, only BOOL and WORD located data (%Mi and %MWi) are restored. 
 
*.DTX (requires Unity Pro 6.0 of higher): 
Saving PLC data to a *.DTX file is allowed for all previous data types. In addition, application references (at the time of the Save) are saved. 
Restoring data from a *.DTX file is allowed even if the application has been built and/or data has been modified since the Save was done. Compatibility Rules for Restore Using a *.DTX File explains the restoration process and the types of data that cannot be restored.
