In order to have a memory created with a later version of Trados work in an earlier version, you have to:
1) Using the later version of Trados, export it to a text file (Trados export format)
2) Create a new memory in the earlier version of Trados
3) Using the earier version of Trados, open the newly created memory
4) Import into the newly created memory the memory you had exported from the older version as a text file.
Of course, if you do not have a new version of Trados, Step 1) has to be done by someone who has it (e.g., if a customer sent you the Trados 6.0 memory, you have to ask them to export it to a text file).
Hope this helps,
