Trouble reading Visio 2000 drawings in Visio 2003


J

Let me briefly describe the problem we as a group are having: Most of
the engineers in the group are using and have been using Visio 2000.
Needless to say we have a lot of drawings that have been created in
Visio 2000. Some people have migrated to Visio 2003. The problem we
found with Visio 2003 is that some of the drawings created in Visio
2000 can not be read from Visio 2003 which prevents the group from
migrating to Visio 2003, hence the problem.
There have been attempts to install both versions of Visio on our
machines and only one person was successful in accomplishing that
task. I have several examples of files that I am willing to share an
example of if someone would like to look at these files and maybe tell
us what we have to do in Visio 2000 to get Visio 2003 to read and
modify these drawings. Your help and assistance in this problem would
be greatly appreciated.

Does Visio 2003 show an error?
What drawing type are they? Flowchart, Org chart, UML etc.
Do the drawings have macros attached?
Try setting Visio 2003 security to Low to see if that fixes things.

If not, you could send me an example
