After looking for answers to my issues with moving from FTM 2006 to version 2012, your post here has solved all my problems and was straight forward and uncomplicated. How do I think you enough!
I had to have my Windows XP computer scrubbed and then reformatted with Windows 7. I saved all my data before the reformat but was troubled by the lack of clear directions of how to open and use version 2012 and version 2006 was not Win 7 compatible and I did not have the old 2006 version CD to reload again.
Once again, thanks a bunch!
