I am running 2010 version but I want my macros to be compatible with older versions. Is there a way to ensure this? Thanks for any help in advance.

The best way generally is to develop them in the oldest version you have to support.

The only issue there is how do I get old versions? Is it possible to download older versions?

It depends. If you have the right level of MSDN or Technet subscriptions then yes (as far back as 2003 anyway). If not, then I don't think so - you'd probably have to see if you can get hold of an old retail copy.
