To successfully open a Classic Movie Magic Budgeting (CMMB) file in Movie Magic Budgeting 7 (MMB7) in Windows:

  • Open Movie Magic Budgeting 7.
  • Go to File and select Open File.
  • Navigate to the folder where the CMMB or EPB budget file is saved.
  • Select either All Files or Classic MMB Files from the Files of Type drop-down list.

  • Select the file from the list.
  • Double- click on the budget or click Open to open the file.
  • Go to File > Save As.

  • Be sure to save the file as an MMB7 file by saving with an “.mbd” file extension.
  • Proceed to work in MMB7.

NOTE: It is a good practice to copy and paste the budget into a blank template, as on occasions, there may be minor incompatibility with a CMMB or EPB file introduced into the MMB7 format.
