    Does Archive file works in lower versions


      Hi, i have archived some catalog files(Reports, Dashboards, prompts) from 11_7.16XXXX version into my desktop. but because of some issues we rolled back to 11_7.14XXXX version. Currently i dont have unarchive access to test latest version catalog files in lower verion. i would like to know if those catalog files will work in lower version? or do i need to do anything to get those work?

          Havent tried those exact two but normally two bundle patches so close together arent a big issue.


          Seriously just do it and see what happens, thats what we do ourselves. You dont try...you wont know...

            Yes, if you dont have the same catalog versions, your oracle bi analytics applications cant do that, at least to me I try to desarchive catalog from obiee to, and the applications didnt allowe me to desarchive my catalog, however, I tried this:


            1. Take a Backup from both catalog versions.

            2. Change the Path of your catalog in the Enterprise Manager.

            3. Restart your BI, and lets check the results.


            I forced to check my catalog and i dindt have any problem.


            Note: This is not a official recommendation, and you have another version however, take a Backup, and try,


            Kind Regards,
