I doubt this is possible, typically you have to upgrade a repository to upgrade the process teemplates and for example using a plain 3.0 process template in 4.0 does not work.

I am talking about workitem's workflows..

Suppose I have customized my own workflow for process change request in RTC 4.0, then can I use that customized workflow in RTC 3.0?

Is there any method like import/export workflows?

Or any other way?

I was talking about the same.

Not that I am aware of. At least no safe way. As far as I am aware there is no feature to export parts of the process template. You can upgrade the process upgrading the repository. There is no downgrade.

Theoretically you can copy the required XML source sections over, but this is not a supported scenario and you are likely to miss something and could damage your process template beyond repair.
