    .PUB is an old Microsoft proprietary format.

     

    A Google search gives varying answers.  Many say is is not possible and others say there are online resources that may convert a .PUB to a PDF.

     

    This one seems to be the most popular.  I have not tried it and have no idea if it works.

     

    I still run MS Publisher under Parallels Desktop on one on my iMacs.

    I have just discovered http://www.zamzar.com

     

     

    Everyone on the net seems fixated with converting the .pub to .pdf. But this option allows you to convert .pub to .doc. and .docx. Which is far more handy if you want to edit or work with the document!

    Thanks for this.  I tried the website and it did work.

    The zamzar site converted my .pub file to Word, but all the table borders and pictures were converted to one fixed overlay, so it wasn't much use. It also dropped spaces and changed a few letters.
