Hi, I have a number of documents made with a very old version of Pages.  When I try to open them, I'm told they're "too old" and that I have to first open, then save, them in Pages '09. Is there somewhere I can download this on the Apple website

Hi,
I have a number of documents made with a very old version of Pages.  When I try to open them, I'm told they're "too old" and that I have to first open, then save, them in Pages '09. Is there somewhere I can download this on the Apple website?
Thanks.

Your documents sound like they were created with Pages '08 and you are trying to open them in Pages 5.
You have 2 versions of Pages on your Mac.
Pages 5 is in your Applications folder.
Pages '09/'08 is in your Applications/iWork folder.
You are alternately opening the wrong versions.
Pages '09/'08 can not open Pages 5 files and you will get the warning that you need a newer version.
Pages 5/5.01 can not open Pages 5.1 files and you will get the warning that you need a newer version.
Pages 5.1 sometimes can not open its own files and you will get the warning that you need a newer version.
Pages 5 can open Pages '09 files but may damage/alter them. It can not open Pages '08 files at all.
Once opened and saved in Pages 5 the Pages '09 files can not be opened in Pages '09.
Anything that is saved to iCloud is also converted to Pages 5 files.
All Pages files no matter what version and incompatibility have the same extension .pages.
Pages 5 files are now only compatible with themselves on a very restricted set of hardware, software and Operating Systems and will not transfer correctly on any other server software than iCloud.
Apple has not only managed to confuse all its users, but also itself.
Note: Apple has removed over 95 features from Pages 5 and added many bugs:

You can buy iWork '09 very cheaply from Amazon or other sources. Make sure you update it after installing to v 4.3:

Archive/trash Pages 5, after exporting all Pages 5 files to Pages '09 or Word .docx, and rate/review it in the App Store, then get back to work.
