Map created from a template in Arc10 compatible in 9.3?
We have a large number of maps created from a client's template in ArcGIS 10 and when we do a "Save a Copy" in 9.3 format (we have only one license for Arc 10), it looses the layout and all the links to the data is gone. Is there a compatibility problem that prevents us to save our maps created in ArcGIS 10 into 9.3.1?
Mapping Center Answer:
The Save a Copy option to save an ArcGIS 10 .mxd as a 9.3.1 copy should not cause problems, if you have not upgraded the geodatabase to 10 yet. Here is an excerpt from an ArcGIS Desktop blog entry about this:
"Geodatabases can remain in 9.3.1 format and be used in 9.3.1 and 10. However, if you want to take advantage of the new geodatabase improvements in ArcGIS 10, you need to upgrade the geodatabase to 10, at which time 9.x clients will not be able to read it."
