Using Quicken 2007 for MAC. Unable to open a new copy after creating it with "save a copy".

Using Quicken 2007. Unable to open a new copy after creating it with "save a copy". I get a response like "unable to save" and " unable to open" I have Quicken 2017 on my Mac, have not used it yet, opened it, tried to convert my current file, and save, would not do so.

    BTW, APFS file format was introduced with macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) but only applied to SSD drives by default. Then with macOS 10.14 (Mojave), all boot drives were automatically converted to APFS format. So likely, you are using macOS 10.13 or higher.

    If it really becomes important for you to use Save A Copy (which can be useful to correct internal data file problems), you can create a Mac OS Extended format (aka HFS+) to store your QM2007 files. We can walk you through that if it becomes necessary.
