Good Day

Not sure what the problem is, "no back end" sounds like gnucash can't
load some datasource, perhaps one referenced within the file.

Check which version the file was working with, and the version which
doesn't work. Version incompatibilities may cause such errors.

No gnucash expert, try their mailing list for the expert advice ;)
