If I use the Export option to send my MS 11 Explorations, Formulas, Indicators etc. to .DTA files using the Organizer, can they be imported into MS 9.1, assuming I'm not using any features/functions not available in 9.1? I'm trying to create a backup plan to revert to my old 9.1 version if my system crashes now that MetaStock has seen fit to abandon the ability to reinstall versions 10 and 11 (and abandon those who are happily using those versions).  If the Organizer export/import to older versions doesn't work, the only other way I can think to do it is to manually copy/paste every one into a text file from Edit mode to paste back in later on - a ton of work, but better than nothing. Thanks in advance for any insights.

Hi, Version 12 is installable/reinstallable, although we do not maintain a link within the Eikon application for R/T (Pro) users. Generally speaking, formula files are not backwards compatible because MetaStock 9.1 would only be designed to look for version 9.1 files or earlier. In theory, you can attempt to rename the version 11 exported files to follow the 9.1 naming convention, but this is not supported and may or may not work.
