Hello,

I have been sent several TMX files from the client to be imported into WF Pro5. For every one of them, however, I receive the error message "filexxxEN-DA.TMX is not a TMX file" although the file is labeled .tmx in the folder.

How can I import the tmx file properly? Do I perhaps need to convert it somewehre -and how- in order to convert it? Or did the client send me a file in the wrong format?

Manny thanks in advance for any help you may have.
