Convert ACT2008 to ACT2007

We wish share a single database on 2 x PCs, one running ACT2008 & the other running ACT2007. How do I copy/convert/export the database on 2008 to the 2007 PC? and then the reverse i.e. 2007 to 2008 - which I assume will be easier. Thanks

You can't do that, both will need to be the same version.

Re: Convert ACT2008 to ACT2007

You can convert the 2007 to 2008 by opening it in 2008, but you can't go the other way.
 
To share the data all users need to be on the same version, so upgrade the 2007 machine to 2008
