Unable to open .dtp file

Hi, in 2009 I created a file which I saved. Came across it today when having a clear out and tried to open it without success. I have tried scribus and a Serif dtp programme without success. I have used the file command in linux and have found out that it was made in a programme called Greenstreet publisher which I vaguely remember having on a laptop at the time. Can anyone suggest any other programme which would allow me to open this file and save it in a different format..

Try Greenstreet publisher. Unfortunately you might have to splash out a tenner, or so, from someone like Amazon, then convert to PDF, within the program. Which version is open to question. Typical of tec advances, leaves your back-ups useless at times.

Thanks for the answer. Unfortunately the version of Green Street being offered is unable to read older version .dtp files (that's progress for you). I had the original Green Street as a programme on an old laptop which has since gone, so it looks as if I am going to have to type the whole thing out again. Fortunately I still have the written copy and the photos. It was a account of a visit to Singapore and New Zealand with photos. Again thanks for trying to solve the problem.

If you still have a printed rather than a handwritten copy you could always scan it and use an OCR programme then import it into a programme you use eg as a .doc or .pdf. That would save a lot of typing.
