Yes. Older ID files can be opened in newer versions of ID. The trickier issue is opening CC files in older versions of ID.

It will. I just tested with an InDesign 6.0 file. That is CS4.

Thank you John. Since my older version of ID isn't compatible with my current OS, i won't have any reason to open CC files exdept in CC.
