Filemaker Pro 13 does not import file links from Bento 4.1.2

Post

I just purchased FM Pro 13 and I am having a lot of difficulty importing my databases from Bento 4.1.2.  Not only is the formatting largely lost but in Bento I had links to files for each entry that are now gone in FM.  The import is basically useless if it loses the file link as I have inventory linking to scanned invoices.  I must be doing something wrong because FM certainly couldn't mess up an import from their own program to this degree correct?  I have tried the import function build into the FM Pro 13.  I try File>Import Records>Bento Data Source and I select a bento backup.  I've also tried the FM Migration tool.  I have attached a screen shot with what Bento looks like and what I would largely want in FM.  Needless to say I get nothing like this on FM so far.  Any help would be great.  Thanks
