Converting Quicken 2007 doc to Quicken Starter ("resource fork missing")

In Quicken Starter, I selected File>Import>Quicken Mac 2007 file. I selected the old Quicken document (which opens just fine on my 2019 MacBook Pro running Mojave) but Quicken Starter won't import it and shows me a dialogue box saying 'the resource fork is missing'. They say to go to the original file and zip it. Problem is... I made a million backups onto various drives. I've no idea which is the original. And if I can open the doc on my computer, how come Quicken Starter can't find all the resources it needs? Anyone got a suggestion?

    IIRC, just rename the file & give it a .qdfm extension, and it should work.
