Is autocad 2004 backwards compatable?

Can you save an acad2004 drawing to autocad 14?

Not directly. A2004 will save back to A2000. A2000 will save back to R14. A2004 does not even save back further as DXF. :-(

That is not true.
ACAD 2004 will export as R12 DXF.
You have to choose the export option, then it will export the drawing as a R12 DXF file.
