Thanks Bob for the reply. You're saying a CS2 files should open in the latest versions of Indesign? Sorry, I'm lost in the dark ages on this.

That's exactly what I'm saying. I have files from InDesign 1.5 here that still open in InDesign 2021.

But be prepared for a lot of text reflow because the text engine has changed dramatically. It will happen when you work with the text in any way. I recommend you use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl (Cmd) + Alt (Opt) + / (forward slash) to recompose all stories befor you do anything else when opening a legacy file you plan to edit.
