Hello Friends, 

Please use .wbpz archive format for sharing your project files in student community. To do that, go to Workbnech>Archive. 120 Mb is the maximum file size that you can attach. 

See below:

Does saving as a wbpz file allow me to open the file on a previous version of ANSYS.

For example if I did a project on my personal computer with ANSYS 18.2, could save the project.wbpz file and then open and continue working on it with another computer that ANSYS 17.8?

No. You can only open an archive with the same or newer release of ANSYS.

Ok, is there any way to save and open on a previous version on ANSYS Workbench?

I don't know of any way to open a new file in an old version.  There is an export function in Mechanical that will write out a file. You can try that. I've never tried to go backward.
