Description of the issue

I am new to FileMaker Pro 12 and attempting to import my Bento data via the FM Quick Start Screen. When I choose "Convert an Existing File", then "Show - Bento Data Source", I get a message that reads "This database was written by a later version of Bento and cannot be opened by this version."
