How do I open a .pub file in publisher?

A customer sent me a .pub file. I had 97 version to no avail. Bought 2003 to 
no avail. How can I open the unknown version in an application with internal 
inconsistancy.

I believe the current version of Publisher, 2003 will open all previous 
versions of Publisher files.

Publisher 2003 requires Windows 2000 or XP.

I don't think that whether you had an internal inconsistency would affect 
your computer in any way.   ;-)

Seriously, I assume you tried opening the .pub file so what happened?

I *hate* when clients send me files with internal inconsistencies!...or =

Sounds like a corrupt file Oscar..ask the client exactly what they did.

I should have typed "I don't think that whether **you** had an internal 
inconsistency would affect your computer in any way."

Lost something in the conversion between my strange mind and the keyboard. 
Long day - just got home from a mini PA MVP Summit with 4 other MVPs. It was 
awesome!

Publisher 2003 will open all versions of .pub, however I have had some problems with 
2000 documents. If you have Norton, disable script blocking and in Norton options, 
misc., disable Office plug-ins as well.

If none of the above helps, I will open the file if for you...

Publisher 2003 will not open Publisher 1.0 files. The only app that can open 
Publisher 1.0 files is Publisher 2.0.

What happens when you try opening a 1.0 file? Is there an error or do you get "can't 
open because of a different version" lingo? I am going to go through my old floppies 
and see if I can find a 1.0 file. They are all on 5 �" disks. I have 2.0 installed 
but not 1.0.

The results of my survey surprised me a little - but they were invaluable in 
my coursework project.

I must get around to writing a proper post of thanks (thanks to all here who

Outlook data file check

Slow loading of money files
Upgraded from deluxe 2007 to deluxe 2008 (Money Plus Deluxe). Same file now takes 10-15 minutes to load, and that is if it loads at all. Maxes out both CPUs and freezes up sometimes. Have done both quick and standard repair with "no errors". File size increased by 20 MB after repair. Running on Vista Ultimate x32. Right now I can't use the upgrade in the present state. Fist time in eleven years I've had a "real difficult" problem using Money. Any suggestions? What changed behind the scenes to cause this? In microsoft.public.money, wolschon1 wrote: >...

Refresh of links in shared file.
I have created a shared file that has a production schedule. It has links to another non-shared file so that I can use/refresh a query to pull production information from a database and put it into pivot tables. I have a vlookup to find the totals of the part in the pivot table. When I have the schedule file shared and open and I have the "update file" open and then update the query everything in my shared document updates. I save changes. The problem is others cannot see these changes by saving (it works if I type numbers instead of using a link to the update file...

calls to extract data from an open database
I have a workbook that on the “open” event connects to an Oracle database using ADO, this works fine. I need to code various calls to the data base to run several queries. How do I achieve this? Do I have to repeat the ADO connection string to the database complete with password etc; I am sure this is not necessary. Any code will be very gratefully received. -- with kind regards Spike The usual way to handle this is have a Public or Private ADO connection object so you can set that up once and keep it alive till you don't need it anymore. So for example: Opti...

Hyperlinking to an Email Address in Publisher
I have designed an event invitation in Publisher. This will be sent out via email to invitees by clicking "File - Send Email - Send as Message" in Publisher.

Publisher 2003 gradients
Hi. What has happened to the shaped gradients that were available in earleir versions of Publisher? I can't find tham in Pub 2003. Can anyone help, please?

transfer OE files from Win2k to XP
I'm going to help my dad install XP on his existing machine. It's going to be a clean install so we're overwriting his 2000 installation completely. He's already backed up everything from the machine that he wants to keep. But it occurred to me that OE could be a problem. He's still using OE for email despite my efforts to get him away from it. I know how to transfer the files from one installation to another (email files and address book). But I recall doing something like this some years ago and ran into a problem. I just don't remember if it's the s...
