@SLetten – is there a slight chance, that someone has opened and saved that file in a newer version of InDesign?
See (read the post before installing the script):
[Ann] Identify Your InDesign File

Nope, no chance at all. It is a Uni project from last term, and only avilable on my hard drive.
I will have a read of what you have posted, and see if it helps. Thanks.
I have just managed to open another two copies of this piece of work that i had saved, the copy that will not open is the final version. All saved and constructed in the same way!
But i have the areas that i need to re-use in a previous copy. Thank you for your help.
I may have opened it at Uni and saved over it using a newer version perhaps. What should i save it as to be able to open it in any indesign programmes?
@SLetten – with the help of that script you can find out which version of InDesign was used when saved.
Then you should open your file in that version of InDesign and export it to IDML. IDML is the exchange file format for InDesign versions CS4 to CC.
Make sure your CS5.5 version of InDesign is on the latest patch level (v7.5.3) before opening the IDML in CS5.5.
By installing the latest CS5.5 patch, if that is a file created in a later
version of ID, the message will change to give you that information.
@Bob – ah, yes. Never noticed that. Thank you for adding that detail!
