    Coordinate transformation from WGS 1984 to Everest 1830 or vice versa?

      I have been trying hard to find out how to convert the coordinate from Everest 1830 to WGS 1984? What I have been doing recently is insert two different data frames and specify two coordinate systems (datums). Add the layer/shapefile/feature with known coordinate system having proper datum. After that I drag the layer to another data frame and click on close when asked for Transformation. After that I right click the layer goto data and export and then export the feature/layer to the new coordinate system. It seems to work well. But however, there seem to be some error. I am not sure if its the right way of transforming the coordinate. I never use the Transformations when  I drag the feature to new data frame with different coordinate system. I want to be sure if it is the right way. I need expert help on this,
