Whenever I try to open a .pub file, Paint tries to open it unsuccessfully. understandable, how can I get Publisher to open it automatically. .doc and .xls files open ok in word and e3xcel respectively without trouble. I guess its a setting somewhere that I have been unable to locate. Thanks for your help

The file association has been corrupted. You don't say what your OS is but here is how to change it in Windows 7

Right click the file and select "Open with..." then go to Choose Program (don't select from the initial list), then select Publisher and tick the box "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
