Trying to convert 2007 to 2013 Streets & Trips
Mikea3
I've been working with MS Streets & Trips for years on a 2007 version, I have a map of the USA that I have been highlighting thousands of miles of roads with the Ctrl +E function. Now I have the 2013 version and wanted to import my 2007 map (est) into it, but 2013 says it only supports back to 2008 when they started with the (stt) format. Does anyone know if I find a copy of 2008 or maybe 2009, will they have a map import from 2007 and then I could turn-around and import the intermediate 2008 or 2009 into my 2013? Make sense? /Thanks Mike

I also have S&T Files from my travels 2006, 2007, 2008 and up to my present version of 2013. I tried to open my 2007 files and have the same problem. I do still have version 2008 and I hope it will open my 2006 and 2007 files. I think I just got rid of my 2006 and 2007 versions not thinking I would need them.

Hi BC. - If you have 2008, can you see if it will import your 2007 files and if it does, can you then see if 2013 will import the 2008 files, so that way we would know if it's possible to get a 2007 file to 2013 version by that means. /Thanks Mike

Yes, Mile , that will work. I know for sure that S&T 2010 will convert 2007 files and 2013 will convert 2010 files. I would go for a 2010 version if you can get your hands on one.

Alternatively, if you don't have too many files and aren't concerned about confidentiality, you could send the files to me and I would be happy to convert them up to 2010 and send them back to you for free.

Hey Spades Flush -that is great news and thanks for your conversion offer. There is just this one file I need to convert to 2013 (via 2010). It's the first 3rd of routes I have travelled and photographed along. Living in Texas I have highlighted routes in that state and a few surrounding, along with a few trips in different parts of the U.S. I've let this sit for awhile and now want to update the other two thirds of the routes that cover the other 48 states and Canada I have been in. I've got all that on paper maps and need to update to S&T 2013.

I appreciate your help with this and hope that the Ctrl+E highlighted lines actually come through the conversion. Do you want me to send the file, (about 550k) through the forum, or directly to you on another email? The file is not confidential, just a bunch of highlighted roads. /Thanks Mike

Mike, send me a private message in this Forum and I will reply with my e-mail address to which you can post your file(s). I will process-up and send them by return.

I may not be able to send you a private message. The help file says to click on the "Send private message" link available when clicking on your user name. When I click on your name there are some different options but not one that allows private message. Upon checking help further it says the following ...
  1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
  2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
Maybe since I have only been registered for a few days I don't have this privilege yet. Are you able to click my name and send me a private message? /Thanks Mike

Good guess, Mike, and by now it should work. Give it a try now.

For those that are interested..
I have S&T files back to 2006.
I can open as far back as 2008 with 2013.

I have S&T files of all the RV trips I have taken since 2006. I have to many to try and convert one by one. My question is does Microsoft have anything that will convert our older files to a newer update so they can be useable.

I know this is a old post but I'm in the same boat as others needing to convert older S&T files to 2013. Is your offer still good about converting an older file to 2013? I just joined and most likely won't be able to pm you yet.
