How to convert STB-style drawing to CTB-style (or vice versa)?

A - answer For AutoCAD 2000: Install the Migration Assistance and use the _ConvertCTB and _ConvertPstyles commands (internal commands in AutoCAD LT and higher versions).

For higher AutoCAD versions: the CONVERTPSTYLES command switches the drawing status from named to color plot styles (or vice versa). The CONVERTCTB translates (converts) the existing plot style tables (STB/CTB).
