My boss sent me an Indesign file and when I go to open it it says that it needs to be converted from an indd file to an IDML file. When I click convert, it isn't able to do it. Why can't I just open the INDD file on my computer?

Apparently your boss has a newer version of InDesign installed.

you should tell us what version of indesign has your boss and what version of indesign have you?

Did you tell to your boss to save the file as idml and send it to you? Then you should be able to open that idml file and save it as indd
