QX17 to QX18 file exchange

Post by Wizz » 04 Dec 2018, 10:44

Is it possible for QX17 to read files from QX18 and vice versa. We are currently using v17 but need another program for an additional computer as the users need to exchange and alter their respective files. They are in separate buildings. Presumably we will have to get v18 as we are only licensed for one user with our existing version and v17 is no longer available

Many thanks for any help

2018 can save back to 2017. Any use of unique 2018 features will not be in the back saved 2017 file.

Thanks Mike

That is encouraging. I don't yet know what unique features of 2018 could be used but because we use Quark for a fairly straightforward village newspaper I fully expect that we can avoid using them so that we have the ability to exchange files in both directions.
