File->Export->Export XML (don't include images). Open the XML file in a 
text editor and change the 4th line fro

<collection type="5"...


<collection type="2"...

In other words, just change the 5 to a 2. Then save it and from  Tellico 
do File->Open to open the XML file and save as your original filename.

That should do it.
