Hiya All.

Just a quicke, does anyone know if microsoft publisher is included in the Office XP Program.

Many Thanks For Any Help.

Only certain versions. I think Professional Version and above.

I stand to be corrected, but I think the publisher part of the Office XP is a different beast to MS Publisher and that files produced in one cannot be read by the other.

Microsoft Publisher 2002 is included with Office XP Pro. It is also true that I can`t open a document originated in 2002 in Publisher 97.

I think Hoverman was saying that Publisher in Office XP is different to MS Publisher - it isn't. I've got Office XP Pro and MS Publisher.

From MS Publisher help

File types that Publisher will open
Microsoft Publisher can open the following file types:

Microsoft Publisher versions 98 and later
Microsoft Word 2.0 and later
Microsoft Word for the Macintosh 4.0?5.1
Microsoft Excel
Lotus 1-2-3
Plain (ASCII) text
Rich Text Format (.rtf)
Unicode text
WordPerfect 5.x and 6.x

So no 97...

Am I right in thinking that there are two options when purchasing Office XP Pro. One with Publisher and one with Frontpage. If so you must make sure you order the right one.

I got both Publisher and FrontPage with my Office XP Pro (and a free MS Optical mouse)

Looks like Publsiher is standalone

If i remeber correctly i bought the Office XP upgrade and got FrontPage and Publisher and the mouse thrown in..

Alcudia has it. Checked my office disks and I only got Publisher NO FrontPage (or free mouse).

Point I was making was that the documents are not backwardly compatible unless you save from 2002 in file type Publisher 98

  Taff36 15:19 19 Aug 2003

Publisher is a separate disk in my pack so stand alone it is now and back when I had Office 97. In fact I think it was actually Publisher 98. Don`t think there was such a thing as Publisher 97.

Oh yes there was. Hung by my own petard.
