Setting Autocad 2012 to always save as previous version?

So i am considering upgrading to autocad 2012 on one of our workstations.  But I want to know what versions can be set in the Options...Save As dialog box.  Can someone with 2012 please check which versions AutoCAD 2012 can be configured to automatically save to? (For compatability with other, older Autocad users in our office like 2009 and 2010).

Thanks!

Also keep in mind that 2012 uses the same dwg format as 2010, so you should be okay in that respect.

For the 2009ers, you'll have to save to the 2007 format.

I  recommend you try the software before you buy it. Just run the software in trial mode for 30 days and see how it works for you. This way you can see first hand if 2012 plays well with others for your specfic work enviroment before you commit money for it.
