Can I open 1995 .pub files with Microsoft Picture It Publishing 20

I found some old *.pub files dated 1995. Not sure exactly what they were made
with, but it was a microsoft publisher. I tried to open them with Microsoft
Picture It Publishing 2001, but I can't. It doesn't even see the files. How
can I open those old 1995 *.pub files.

Thanks,

Steve

=====================================
Picture It! Publishing 2001 is an image editing
program and is not compatible with .pub files.
The native formats in PI2001 are .mix and .php.

You need Microsoft Publisher...similar name...
different software. MS Publisher 2000 could
probably open the older .pub files and allow
you to save them in a format that the more
current versions of Publisher could open.

You can download a trial of the current version
at the following link. Even after the trial expires...
the software will still function as a viewer.

I downloaded the trail version, but when I try to open the *.pub file, I get
" Publisher Can't Open the File".

=================================
As I stated in my reply....

"MS Publisher 2000 could probably open
the older .pub files and allow you to save
them in a format that the more current versions
of Publisher could open."

IOW...you need MS Publisher 2000 to open
the files and save them in a format that the
newer version can open.

If you only have a few files...maybe one of the
regulars in the newsgroup will offer to convert
them for you. Otherwise, I guess you'll have to
purchase some software. I just hope Pub2000
will open the old files for you. No guarantees...
sorry.

If you want to upload some of the files to the
following site...post the download links here
and I'll have a look at them.

"YouSendIt"
http://www.yousendit.com/

All you have to do is enter an e-mail
address in the Recipient field and
click the browse button to select the
file you wish to upload. Then click the
"Send It" button.

The next screen that appears will give
you the download link. Just copy/paste
it into your reply to this newsgroup..

Amazon and eBay are good sources for
outdated software.

Publisher 95 files will can be opened with Publisher 2007. Corel Ventura files
from way back had a .pub extension.

If you have Norton you might have problems opening files.

Ok, thanks. I have 7 pub files. Would that be too many to upload ?
Also to Mary, I do have NIS 2007, but that solution didn't help.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi Folks,

I am a user of Publisher 2000 and am willing to help out and open and save
the files if I can.

Send them maybe a file at a time just in case they are too large as a group.

I'm at dschmidt AT pacifer DOT com
