Visio 4 does not understand later versions of Visio (Visio 4.1, 4.5, 5, 2000
or 2002). Visio 2000 and Visio 2002 can open earlier versions of Visio, but
only save as the current and previous file format version. Since the format
did not change between Visio 2000 and Visio 2002, the previous file format
for both of them is Visio 5. (Visio 5, could save as Visio 4.x)
The only way to save as Visio 4 is to save in Visio 5 format for Visio 2000
and obtain a copy of Visio 5 and use it to save in Visio 4 format. The down
side (other than trying to obtain a copy of Visio 5) is that as you save in
an older version format, information will be lost, because features that
were introduced in later versions are not available in previous versions.
Upgrading will solve your problem, but the current version of Visio only
allows upgrades for users of Visio 5 or higher.
