Hi,
Just wanted to know if Open Office or any other free DTP suites open MS Publisher files?

Any ideas most gratefully received.

Regards,
Jules.

I can confirm OpenOffice won't open them. I think Publisher files are quite specific to the Microsoft suite, even different versions of publisher are not compatible, they won't open each other's files.

I've tried in vain to open publisher files in all sorts of programs, even other DTP programs won't open MS Publisher documents.

The thing I've found to work is to PDF the file using something like PDFmaker and the pretty much the whole planet can view the file.
