Hi, I'm trying to open some old publisher 97 files with my publisher 2003,
but it won't open them. I'm getting the message that Publisher can no longer
open this file. Publisher no longer supports files that were saved in this
version. I don't have the publisher 97 disks anymore to install the older
version. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Monte

Hi Mary,

Thanks for your help. I don't know how to disable office plug ins. If you
can tell me how to do that I'll give it a try.

Thanks!

I can open 97 files just fine. Are you certain they are 97 files? There has been
an issue with 2.0 files.

If you still cannot open the files by disabling the Office Plug-in, I will open
them for you.

Open Norton, options, Miscellaneous, clear "Enable Office Plug-in."
