I have a complex datawindow that was created in PB8 and I need to
import it into PB7. I changed the release to 7, but it still won't
import.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Kreg Gillispie

Each new version of PB adds new attributes to the datawindow syntax. You
have to remove the stuff that was added in PB8. Generally, when you attempt
to import the datawindow, it will give you a line/column number. When that
happens, remove the attribute at that line/column position. Then attempt to
import it again. Keep doing that until it works.

Thanks for the information. Unfortunately, the datawindow won't even
import and the error message is the generic "Failed to import" dialog
box.

Create a simple DW in both 7 and 8 and then export both. Compare the source
and you'll fnd what has been added in 8 that needs to be removed.
