Quark has a free document converter on their Web site which will convert a QuarkXPress 5 file into a format that can be opened directly by QuarkXPress 10. Basically any QuarkXPress documents older then version 7 can be run through this converter to make them compatible with version 10.

You shouldn't have to up-covert. A Quark 4.1 file should open nicely in Quark 8.1. There shouldn't be any problems between the two. The only difference you'll find is in the software, not the file. Quark 8 has a new interface, that is different enough from the previous versions to be a little confusing.

I don't use Quark 8.1, but I would think if you just selected "open" and retained all the preferences of the 4.1 file, it would work. The problem happens when you are trying to backsave into an older version that doesn't have all the whistles and bells of the newer one.

Want to convert Quark 7.3 file to Quark 4.1 so it can be read by InDesign.

Thats not possible.
QuarkXPress 7 would allow you to downsave to a QuarkXPress 6 document but not to QuarkXPress 4.

you would have to open the document in QuarkXPress 6 then save to version 5, then open the same in QuarkXPress 5 and then downsave to 4

"this document cannot be opened by this version ofQx" (17)

As time goes on software applications tend to change enough that an older version produced file is not forward compatible with a new version. For instance some of my MS Office files no longer can be opened by the latestr version of "Word", hence Microsoft issued a plug in that will allow you older "Doc " files to be read by the latest version of "Word", same thing holds tru for FLASH program, every time a new version of FLASH comes out, the older version can not be read by it.
You need a version of QuarkXpress that can read this doc, If you created the original document, the you can go to your version of QuarkXpress to open the document or if possible ask the originator of the document what version they used to create the document.
