Documents with earlier versions of FS Pro

For those documents that already have an earlier version of FS Pro attached to them, an FS Pro dialog box appears when they open the document in Word that indicates the document was saved in an older version of FS Pro and the user is prompted to convert it to FS Pro 2013.

If the user wants to convert it to FS Pro 2013, click the Yes button.
