Hello Fellow GISers,
I have never been able to open any colleague's mxd. I had accepted this
as the status quo until Janis Paulsen sent out a solution to her problem
with an attached mxd. I was curious why she sent an mxd instead of a
pdf or jpg. When I tried to open her mxd, I got the message saying "The
map document was saved using a newer version of ArcGIS". Ok, that's
simple enough - different versions equals a compatibility issue.
However, she was able to open the mxd I sent her. Assumption: Lower
versions can be opened with higher versions... maybe. Hmmm, whenever I
try to open a colleague's mxd, I get the message: "Could not open the
specified document". Why? Janis thought that this may be a question
for SHRUG-L and I thought, why not. Let's see what the collaborative
powers of the great minds of SHRUG GISers can come up with.
Thanks to all,
