Problems with version

A client of mine decided to upgrade to version - I still work on version 4.5.1. 760 which operates beautifully - now we have a mess. I have tried to install her version and all goes well until I restore her work for the full year - I only get March - nothing for the remainder of the year - can anyone help please?  We don't know where to go from here.
