Hi there,If the files were created in Pages 09, then you will need to install Pages 09 on the new MacBook Air so that you can still open the old files.

The files were created in Pages 08

Hi Pete

This is getting too complicated. Since you gave me your advice in good faith, I'm quite willing to change your rating to good. When I went into the website I had no idea I would be dealing with someone in the USA until I saw the time 'EST' (Eastern Standard Time).

Thank you for your advice. I will find another way to deal with the problem, even if it means making hard copies of all the files.

With very best wishes

MacBook - Pages '08 - version 3.0.3

Macbook Air - No number - version 5.5.2

Can you help me using this info? (£39 has already been taken out of my account)
