ESRI Geodatabase Downgrade Tool

Most of you must have at least few 9.x (9.2, 9.3, 9.3.1 hopefully no 9.1) while your main production ESRI geodatabase is in 10.x you must face it frustrating that your 10 data won't work on 9.x machines.

Here is a simple tool to use to "Downgrade" any geodatabase to a 9.x version.


Open ArcCatalog

Navigate to the tool.


Double click on Downgrade GDB tool.


Select your 10 gdb


Enter the information
The output will be in the same folder


The result will be the same as your selected gdb plus a 9x suffix.


Enjoy.
