To once again clarify: you can do this, but you cannot open a 7.1 project in EG 4.3 (or any version before 7)

Re: SAS EG 7.1 migration issue

Just open it. EG 7.1 will notify you that it has an older format and will be converted to EG 7.1 format on saving. Once you save it, it will be stored in the new format.

If you need to keep the option of using it in EG 4.3, save to a new location/new name so that the old version stays.

You cannot save a project from 7.1 in the 4.3 format, so all changes you make cannot be used in 4.3.
