Frequently asked question

Can I use ArcInfo 8.0.2 to read geodatabase annotation created with ArcGIS 8.1?


No. Geodatabase annotation is not backward compatible. A number of enhancements have been made to symbology in ArcGIS 8.1, and the storage for symbology has changed to accommodate those enhancements. This storage structure is not readable by versions earlier than 8.1. This means you cannot use ArcInfo 8.0.2 to view annotation created in ArcGIS 8.1.
