    Red face Unanswered: Paradox 9 to Paradox 7 or vice versa

    I am trying to help my mother who has Paradox 7 on her system (WinXP) and I have Paradox 9 (from Corel WP 2000).
    I need to restructure her table and add some fields. Also need to create some input forms, queries and reports. Can I use Paradox 9 to do these from my system (also WinXP) and transfer them to her system to be used in Paradox 7?
    I remember reading somewhere that Pdox 9 is forwards and backwards compatible, but don't remember what exactly is f/b compatible.
    It has been many years since I worked with Paradox, but she wants to use it because it is familiar to her.
    Any advice is appreciated.

    the tables are level 7, in both places.. they're interchangeable and/or can be touched by p7 and p9 at the same time..

    forms, reports, and code from p9 can be opened and re-saved in p7, as long as they only use stuff that p7 knows..
