Default 8.5 files in 2008


all of my files have been created in 8.5 but I'm keen to make the move to 2008, which I've installed already.

Just in case I have some disaster in 20008, how can I open my 2008 files back in 8.5? I've tried changing the text references to "2008" to "8.5" but this didn't work.

Go to file, open and look in the option box and check ignore version, should do the trick
