Open files from different version of MS Publisher

I didn't think I used a different version, but maybe I did because trying to open a Publisher file brings up the message that Publisher cannot open files from a different version.

If you know a way to do it, I would be undyingly grateful to you.

Sincerely yours,

Stuart Leigh

I am suffering a lot of problems for reading pdf file so please help me to download pdf file reader

Posted on Dec 23, 2011

I have a similar problem: Files were created in Publisher 2003. Then I had to reformat the hard drive and re-install Publisher 2003. Now I can't open any of my previous files even though created by the same program because "Publisher can not open files from a different version." Very frustrating. I hope someone has a solution.

Hello,

If I was in your position I would do the following things:

1. Try to do a repair install for MS Office Suite/MS Publisher (if separately installed from MS Office).
Instructions on how to do this: Go to Start->Control Panel->Programs and Features->Select MS Office (or) MS Publisher from the list->Click on the top of the toolbar "Repair" button if available.

2.If the above doesn't fix the problem I would suggest to test your MS publisher file as (this) set of Microsoft's KnowledgeBase instructions suggest.

3. If the instructions above are what you have already tried, I would suggest to backup your files from MS publisher and re-install it from the beginning.

Let me know how that went.

I have microsoft publishr on my desk top computer but I dont have the disk.I bought microsoft Publisher 1993 as I was told it would open the files I have on the memory stick I also have the microsoft 98...


...why are you still using publisher 98? Never mind. Whoever told you that 93 would open a file created with 98 was lying; the programming likely isn't compatible. At this point, you'd need to look REALLY hard for someone with the expertise AND tools to get that data for you. I definately have the expertise, but publisher 93 is almost as old as I am, so i doubt i have any of the necessary software lying around. If you use a more modern version of publisher, like publisher 2003, you might get lucky. i don't remember if 2003 is backwards compatible, but it probably is. But if anyone tells you that any computer or program from that era is forwards compatible, they are LYING. So to answer your question, try buying office 2003, and open it with publisher 2003. It might work then.

This makes no sense.

If you updated Publisher, it should read files created with the "current" version of Publisher *AND* it should read files created with the "previous" version of Publisher.

Photographs randomly disappear each time a document is used.


Before you open up Publisher and this document, open up task manager and note how much RAM is used as well as your paging file usage. After you open the document, take another look at your RAM and paging file usage again. If both have increased dramatically, you may want to use smaller images (via compression for JPEG files or lowering the resolution of the images first). Or you could invest in more RAM for the computer.

Unable to open a Publisher file a second time without rebooting PC


have you upgraded from xp to vista since you installed the microsoft publisher?
it sounds like your publisher is not closing the prior instance running. you can bring up the task manager and watch what is happening when you open and close instances in publisher. in task manager click on processes and watch what comes and goes as you work with publisher.
then if it continues, i would reinstall you publisher all together. the consensus among the gurus is it will running but it 11 yrs old and may have issues that can;t be patched for vista.
