If I had built jobs in v8.01 ;can I export these jobs and import them into a v7.5 of Datastage? If not are there tweaks to make it possible? Please advise.
Pinned topic Are jobs created in v8 downward compatible with v7.5?

Re: Are jobs created in v8 downward compatible with v7.5?2008-12-18T10:38:11ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Not easily.. off the top of my head:
- Between the different releases some stages have had more options added to them - so for example options for stages in 8.0.1 stages may not be implemented in 7.5 stages
- Some stages are only available in 8.0.1 and later
- The contents of an 8.0.1 DSX file has elements that will not be recognised by 7.5. Whilst the import will ignore them, it will warn you every time.
- Jobs using features in 8.0.1 not available in 7.5 obviously wont work (ie data connections, parameter sets etc)>
