Symptoms

When opening a specification from an older version of the software you are not asked to validate.

More information

By default NBS specification software is NOT set to automatically check for validation.  Therefore the option to check for validation may be turned off.

Resolution

To check that the Validate feature is enabled go to Tools > My Settings and then choose the Keeping up to date tab.  You will then see four tick boxes to use for the different validation options.
