    Basic Q re Map Point versions & uses

    A true novice re Map Point versions.

    My Q ...

    If I have a newer version of Map Point than others in my organization, can I save a map in an older version so they can use it with the version that they use?

    I appreciate your comments.

    No, it's not possible.. if you are going to share maps, better to create it in the lowest version everyone is using, it is easy to convert them up to the latest version, but impossible to convert them down.

    You might be able to export the data from your map that is in the newer version to an external format and then recreate the map in the older version, but it's a pain.

    Best if you can get everyone to upgrade to MapPoint 2010 We can give you a discount.
