Finding files with older process versions

My catalog has a number of previously-imported images which were processed with older process versions (in the Calibration Panel). Is there a quick and easy way to find all the images that have process versions older than the current one (Version 5)? I'd like to update them all to the latest version. I looked for something like this is the metadata filter selections, but process version doesn't show up.

Thanks,
Dave

IF you want to update photos to the current version-
Press “CTRL + A” (“CMD + A” on Mac) to select all images in your catalog. [Right-click] any of the images that were selected, then go to “Develop Settings” and choose “Update to Current Process”.

Instead of selecting 'All Photographs' in the Catalog Panel, You can be selective- eg. Select photos by Folder / Date , etc, then do the 'Update'.
No need to manually 'find' the old process images with a Smart Collection (if that was possible?).
But beware that updating the Process Version may change the edited appearance of photos in the Library.

You're a guru, indeed! Just what I needed to know.

Many thanks,

In the Library Menu there's an option to "Find Previous Process Photos", which if executed will create a special collection in the Catalog Panel entitled "Previous Process Photos", which obviously will contain all photos that are not using the current process version.

Just shows how little I use Menus! Very rarely in fact.
Thanks Jim for enlightening me.
