There is a chance that your data file from v4.4 has nothing in it that won’t be recognized by v4.2.

You might try this:

make a copy of your .epx file
using a TEXT EDITOR, edit the copy and change the version number in the first line from 6 to 5
save the file
try opening the copy with your hospital’s EpiData Manager
save the file with a new name (File, Save As)
