I have one remote database user with a schema version higher than the main Server and cannot sync.  Does anyone know if ACT! 2007 is backward compatible?

I did have other users with lower schema versions than the main Server; updated each of their versions to the same as the main Server and synchronization is happy again.

Thanks for any prompt feedback.

Regard backward compatability - no.

All versions connecting or synchronising with the same database need to be the same version, patch and schema

Thanks.  I would like to be clear...(and sorry if I'm asking the same question)...

Would I be able to install Schema Version 09.00.0556.0000 over Schema Version 09.01.0152.0000 ?
coupled with EX Edition Version 9.0.0.557 over 9.0.1.162 ?

Thanks again for your prompt reply.
