> I need to convert old pagemaker files into indesign files for reprint.
If all you need to do is reprint them, why convert them?
Sometimes InDesign will ask you to use PageMaker to fix links and such in the file before InDesign will be able to use the file. For that reason, it would be a good idea to keep a copy of PM available on a computer that can run it correctly (one that boots into OS9).
If you have hundreds of PM files, all the more reason, since you won't want to check out hundreds of files on the off chance that you may get an order to reprint a few of them (sort of a waste of time).
I take the philosophy that old files that were built in PM can probably stay in PM, and I'll build new files in ID. Of course, you could open a PM file in ID if you want. Its up to you.
