I'm currently having difficulty building a PowerBuilder app with an
InfoMaker 6.0 report. It comes up as an invalid object. Is it possible to
save a report in InfoMaker 6.0 in InfoMaker 5.0 format?

Not directly. I assume you are trying to use an IM6 report in a PB5
application. You can export the datawindow and then remove the PB6 specific
elements.
You can have the IM user create and executable and then include this exe in
your PB app using setlibrarylist("my_im.exe"). This definittely works when
using pb5/Im5 or PB6/IM6, but I don't know if PB5 can use IM5 executables.
N.B.: PB6/IM6 can read PB5/IM5 PSR files with no problem.
