Publisher 2000 and 2002 compatibility

By mdicerbo ·
This is a simple question. A user has Publisher 2002 on one machine and saves a Publisher file on the Shared drive. She then goes to another machine that has Publisher 2000. She can't open the file with Publisher 2000 - even when she originally saved the Publisher file as a 2000 version when on Publisher 2002 (the first comptuter. Are these versions simply incompatible?? Is there a fix for this???

Publisher 2000 and 2002 compatibility

by Ann777 In reply to Publisher 2000 and 2002 c ...

The fact that the function exists (ie you are allowed to save a Publisher 2002 file as a Publisher 2000 file), means that there should not be any compatibility issues.

Which means you have to look at thge other differences between the two computers. Are they on different OSes? Do they have differant default printers?

Because MS Publisher actually stores the printer settings within the document, you may encounter this type of problem.

Here's a resolution if the above applies:;en-us;322120
