Well I've spent the whole day trying to do just that and nothing happens. I have checked the PAF4 backup on the old computer and the records are there; the backup is valid. But the file is called johndoe.paf and the PAF5 download on the new computer rejects that file name, saying it has to be .bak

Thank you for trying. I am beginning to think I should have downloaded PAF4 and stuck with it as I really don't see that PAF5 is of any great benefit to me. I thought all the "bugs" would be out by now!
