I need to work with a .TPU unit, made in BP 6.0. When I use this unit in BP 7.0, I receive the error: Unit file format error.

I don't have the corresponding .PAS file. I think this isn't THAT hard a question if you're into this, and I'm NOT :)

Thank you for your answer,
Gertjan Awater

It would be too much work to work back from a tpu to a .pas file for only 80 points.  You might be better off re-wrting the unit yourself since you don't have source

If you don't have the source for the unit, you probably can't convert it to a 7.0 unit. Unless you are doing something "absolutely spectacular", I don't see why you can't use TP6 to write your programs needing that specific unit. But if you really need to use TP7, the only way I can see you can go around this is if you re-wrote the unit (as kellyjj stated)
