Problem opening Word Document marked PUB file

  freaky 21:16 12 Apr 05

The Wife needs to print some documents that were transferred from her old PC to a new PC.

For some reason they are now called Word PUB files, and when you open them all you see is a load of code !

Have tried opening them with Adobe Reader but they would not open. Would appreciate advice on how to overcome the problem.

You need Microsoft Office (Publisher) on the computer or go here and sign up for 5 free PDFs;-)))) click here

Thanks for that, fortunately I had Microsoft Publisher on my problem sorted.

Is there a way to convert these files so that they will print out in Word ?

File/Save As and select Word (or .rtf) as the file type.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I clicked on one of the PUB Documents to highlight it, then clicked File. There was no Save option displayed !

If the files were transferred from another pc, then they may be read only, in which case there might not be a save option. You did open the file in Publisher first, then try to save as .rtf??

I use Word's 'Recover text from any file' facility (it's one of the 'Files of Type' entries) to extract the text from a Publisher file to a Word.doc file.

Open the file in Publisher, then click File and so on
