Converting 4.0 Files to 3.0 Format

Converting 4.0 Files to 3.0 Format

Question:
I use version 4.0 and the school I go to uses version 3.0. I use windows 95 and they use windows 3.1. I know you can convert a 3.0 document to 4.0, but can you convert 4.0 document into a 3.0 document? If this can be done, please tell me how.

Answer:
Unfortunately, you’ve found one of the limitations of VB 4.0 — it isn’t backwards compatible with 3.0. Once the file has been converted, there are many changes made to the file formats so that it is incompatible with VB 3.0.
