I tried to convert a PM file with InDesign CS4. But for some strange reasons, it always opens the wrong document (I have another PM document with similiar name which I was able to convert to InDesign a few weeks ago). Whenever I tried to open the new PM document, it did convert but it was the previous converted document.
Could someone let me know what would the reason be? I have cleared the Recovery Cache files but still no help.
Any kind assistance will be appreciated.
PS: I am using Windows 7 Pro
Actually, they are not. I went to open the original PM documents, they are two completely different documents, only with similiar names. When I opened them in PM, they show the correct documents but if I tried to convert them into InDesign, it always shows the former one and not the other one.
And I restarted my laptop every morning and after a fresh reboot, the same situation.

I did resave the original PM with a new name (nothing close to the original name), then open with CS4. It still opened the OLD document, not the new one. I put the original PM document in a flash drive and then open it with CS4, it still opened the OLD document.
It seems that CS4 acted like "tracking cookies" and refused to open the new document. It keeps opening the old document.
That's really strange. I have never expierienced such situation with any programs.
I have no idea why. Please help.
Close ID. Move the old file off the computer onto a cd so it is not available, then rename the InDesign SavedData file in the <user>\appdata\local\Adobe\InDesign\Version 6.0\en_US\caches folder. Restart ID and try File > Open... again.
I followed your instructions to trash the prefs (yes, you have to be really quick in order to do that). Unfortunately, it didn't help. CS4 still opened the old document. I went to open the original PM and it was the new one.
So I have decided to just make a pdf from the PM document and then print it out instead.
Again, this is a very strange situation. I'll keep playing with it. If I ever find a solution, I'll post my udpate here.
Thank you, Peter, for all of your kind assistance.
