Adobe InDesign CS2 and Adobe InDesign CS PageMaker Edition can open Adobe PageMaker 6.0-7.x publications and templates. InDesign CS can open PageMaker 6.5x-7.x publications and templates.

My experience has been that converting files from one software package to another (including pagemaker to indesign) is NEVER easy, and there are always issues you will need to troubleshoot.
