Opening a Publisher 200? file in Publisher 2000

Post by Chroelle » Mon Mar 01, 2010 21:05

Hiya.

Remember the guy I was doing some work for, who knew so little of computers he was uneasy using the word "link". He send me a publisher file, which is form a newer version of Publisher than my own (2000), and that means I cannot open it, and I am VERY sure I cannot walk him through saving the document in a format that would open in my Publisher.

Anyone have any ideas? Or possibly Publisher 2007 or later and are able to get the file, convert and resend it to me?

My work computer has Publisher 2007, so send it over and I'll convert it into some other format. Like PDF.

For some odd reason Microsoft didn't make a free Publisher 2007 viewer this time.
