V8i Compatibility

My company is going through a revamp of our guideline on how we recieve drawings and models from our vendors.  As of right now we are using V8i SS3.  I have been searching all over to find out how far back someone can create a dgn that will work seemlessly with SS3.  Right now our guide say 95 but I am certain that won't work.  Does anyone know?  Thanks in advance.

    You should be able to open a DGN file created on a VAX in 1985.  The IGDS (V7 DGN) format didn't, and hasn't, changed.  Intergraph published the IGDS format in 1988.

    Why are you certain?  Have you a DGN file that won't open with MicroStation V8?

    See the History of MicroStation.
