Um, that's completely wrong.

If a program is compiled over a file in TESTDATA and then run with a file in PRODDATA, then it will check the format level identifier of the file it was compiled with against the one it is running with.

If the level identifiers don't match, the program will fail (unless it was instructed to ignore level checks).

So long as the file in TESTDATA and PRODDATA have the same format level identifier, the program will work fine.
