I have no experience in versions of IM prior to 6.5. Are there any known
issues migrating
reports that were created in 5.x over to 6.5? Is there any reason that it
might be better to
create a blank 6.5 pbl and copy the 5.x reports over to it instead of just
opening the older
5.x pbl in 6.5 and letting IM handle the conversion (assuming this can be
done<S>).

Thanks ahead of time.
Doreen

Let IM do the conversion. But make a backup first of your pbl!
