Converting CDR file to AI Illustrator

I am trying to convert a CDR (CorelDraw) file to AI (Illustrator) but each time i convert it using CorelDraw it doesn't seem to open in Illustrator. The latest version I can convert it to using Corel is Illustrator CS6 and the file is over 500mb. 

Could someone please offer any suggestions?

Hi , I've moved your post from the Photoshop forum to the Illustrator forum where you are more likely to get help with your issue.

So you have an older version of CorelDRAW?

 

What's in the file?

CorelDraw 2022 version 24.0.0.301

 

The file is a full marketing book created in Corel which is why the size is so large. When converting I have had to do it in 2 parts as it only allows 100 pages per time

It's a particularly bad idea to continue editing this kind of work in Illustrator.

 

Do yourself a favour and output this as a PDF and then use something like this (this is not free) to get your file into InDesign https://markzware.com/products/pdf2dtp/
