So, as per Jared Banks excellent help, here's how I was able to take a client AC6.5 file and bring it up to an AC20 version.

Jared, you the man!

step 1.
download the AC10 converter from the GS website. Look up "converter" from the GS website search tab
step 2.
extract the AC10 converter zip file into a folder. Perhaps create a new folder in your PC and label it "Archicad10" or something to that effect.
step 3.
Once ALL the folders and files have been extracted into YOUR folder where the "Archicad.exe" file will reside, then open (launch) the Archicad.exe file from that AC10 folder.
step 4.
then locate the AC6.5 verision file and open it.
step 5.
then save the AC6.5 version file. Just "save" and exit.
step 6.
then go to AC20 and open that saved file...and that's it.

Now you can save that file which came from AC6.5 as an AC20 works well.
