Are map documents created in ArcGIS Desktop 10.7 backwards compatible with 10.6.1 or earlier versions?
Save a Copy
Kory Kramer I have a coworker who is using ArcMap 10.7 while I am using ArcMap 10.6.1. "Save a Copy" was used on the 10.7 mxd to be compatible with 10.6 so I could open the mxd. The following is the error message I received when trying to open the compatible 10.6 mxd output from 10.7:
We then tried saving it to a 10.5 mxd to see if 10.6.1 could open it and received this message:
When I did some research and read the ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7 release highlights and updates by Victor Tey I found this page below that may or may not apply to this situation:
Just throwing it out there that we're having trouble using the Save a Copy and getting it to work out of 10.7.
Currently upgrading my computer to 10.7 to try and open the mxd.
Thanks for reading!
Kerry, I just double-checked by saving a 10.6 mxd from 10.7, and it opened fine in 10.6. So it doesn't appear to be a generic bug. It may be something specific to the data in a particular document, add-ins, etc. that you might want to investigate with technical support.
