How do I change the file format from Publisher?

  User-324448 10:07 24 Sep 2003

I have made a brochure and a Vintage Show Programme useing Publisher,Burnt onto a CD, luckily the printer had Publisher and was able to make his printing plates OK, but should I need to use another company I may need to save my work in a different file.How and what?
The brochure made for a pal was saved as usual onto a CD in Publisher but cannot be opened unless the recipient has that programme.And he hasn't. You can see that I am clearly a novice, therefore your reply's should be in a compatable lanuage,ie simple. Thanks in anticipation. Paul.

Open the file in Publisher and then File Menu, Save As - choose a format from the drop down box below where you put the filename.

Not sure what format would be best though...

Thanks Jester but thats my problem I cannot open the line below to alter the file type as it stays greyed out

Ah you didn't say that!!

What version of Publisher are you using?

It shouldn't be greyed out, prof., I never use Publisher, but, as with all Office programmes, have you tried the "Detect and Repair" option from the Help Menu?

2002 will save as Word or Works, but don't know how that will affect the layout etc.
There is also a postscript option and the usual image formats.

There is no .pdf or any dtp option. I would imagine that earlier versions would be even more restrictive. How many pages are we talking of here?

I have version 98 of Pub. but having tried it on a pals 2000 version I am able to open the drop down menu, however it still doesnt help me as I am not aware of what file will suit all users it even has a Hebrew converter or some such thing

This might be because Publisher 98 and 2000 are not compatible. I'm sure this was discussed a couple of weeks ago.

If you are opening a Publisher 2000 created doc in Publisher 98 then you might well have problems..

Can you confirm this is the case?

The programme I made has 24 pages, ie 12 A4 folded and the brochure has a single A4 in Landscape folded to make 4 pages

That kills the save as .tif idea then.

Sorry re-read - you created it in Pub98 and can convert in Pub2000 but not 98??

Are you reading the file direct from the CD or is it a Hard Drive copy?
