I believe you can save to a .mif file (FM 10 allows saving to V7 and V10
.mif files, so I am assuming that FM 11 would allow saving to V8 and V11
.mifs). If you save to a V8 .mif, then FM9 should be able to open the older
.mif version. Adds an extra step w/ the conversion, but if you are stuck in
the FM9/11 debacle, you can get around it this way.

Basically, none. FM11 can save its documents back to FM10 format. Users of
older versions are SOL.
