Information about the .pub (pub) file type

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .pub (pub) file type.

Microsoft Publisher document.

There are no reported applications that will open .pub files other than Microsoft Publisher, nor have Microsoft released a viewer. Microsoft Publisher can save/export into other formats (but this isn't helpful if you have a .pub file but not Microsoft Publisher.)

The site provides a free on-line service for converting .pub files to .pdf files (which are generally much easier to open and read because a .pdf reader is freely available). They will convert the .pub file to a .pdf file and email you the .pdf file, thereby providing an effective means of viewing the contents of the .pub file.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .pub files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .pub. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
