can not import quicken essentials to new quicken 2007

i exported account  quicken essentials 1.7.1 to desktop
tried to import to new quicken 2007
clicked on import  new window opened up asking me to select the file i want to open
I can find the file      but it is dimmed     so i can't select it
and it will not open in quicken 2007
i can not even get started
    Were you following these instructions http://quicken.intuit.com/support/help/upgrading-and-conversion/import-quicken-essentials-transactions-into-os-x-lion-compatible-quicken-mac-2007/GEN83969.html but getting unexpected results?  The file extension piece of the instructions is important.
    • If quicken 2007 is a new install on your computer, you need to create a new file first before the import options can be used.
    • yes  making a new file  was the step i didn't do     i now have imported my essentials file into the new quicken 2007    thank you for the imput
