      I finished my work at home using flash 8...only to find out that the school version is 6.
      I worked really hard on this, and is there ANY way to open in version 6.

      PS: If i cant get the perfect work loaded, at least 80% of it!!! I just want most or at best some to get opened.
      PSS: Does copying and pasting frames work?

      PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

          Unfortunately you can only backgrade by 1 version. This means that, you can save out to Flash 7 from home. Then find a copy of Flash 7 (MX 2004) and save out from there to Flash 6 (MX) Though I wouldn't recommend doing this, as the differences between 6 and 8 are very extreme. Probably better to just do all your work one place or the other (in your case at home, since that is where you started it)

            So how can i downgrade?
            Do i download version 7 and open the file with it?

              Perform a "Save As" in Flash 8, select Flash 7 (MX 2004) from the drop-down - this saves it as a Flash 7 compliant file.

              Next, you need a copy of Flash 7 (MX 2004). Open the file you created in that, and "Save As" to Flash 6 (MX).

              Again, the differences are pretty extreme between Flash 6 and Flash 8, so I do not recommend downgrading this far. Also, you will NOT be able to work on your file at home and keep it as a Flash 6 file, unless you work in MX 2004.
