    Opening 2009 map in previous version

    Is there a way to open a map created with 2009 in the 2004 version? I'm hoping there is some trick out there. This would save me a huge amount of time.

    It's not straightforward, you but you can export all of the data on the MapPoint 2009 map and import into MapPoint 2004.

    How many layers or objects are on your MapPoint 2009 map?

    Hi Eric,

    Are the *.ptm and *.ptt formats not backward compatible? If they are this could be a solution I think. Or do I miss something

    The ptm and ptt files are internally stamped with the version number.

    Newer versions can open older ptm files e.g. MapPoint 2009 can open MP04 and MP06 ptms, and MP06 can open MP04 files.

    But older versions cannot open new ptm files. MapPoint 2006 cannot open MP09 ptm files and MapPoint 2004 cannot open MP06 and MP09 ptm files.
