  • 1. Why did Publisher mailmerge lose text in many newsletter frames?
    I mailmerged a 10 page newsletter of about 5 MB with about 200 addresses. The result lost text in many frames. The same text was lost in each iteration of the newsletter. I'm using Publisher 2003.

  • 4. Stamps.COM & Publisher integration
    Has anyone succeeded in using with MS-Publisher. Right now we end up doing two rounds of printing...once for the address/postage and then for the actual document. Any leads will be most appreciated. We just spent more than an hour with's tech line and got nowhere (after waiting 45 minutes for help).
  • 5. Version conversion
    Hello. I hope I can finally find the answer I need here. Briefly, at my previous employment my employer allowed me use of the office computer to create a brochure for my own (separate) business on MS Publisher, but I don't know which version it was. It could have been MS Pub 2000 or 2002. I got laid off from that job almost two years ago, but I took the .pub file with me, only I can't find a computer to open it on. I tried to open it at Kinko's and got the "cannot open older version" message (which, thanks to reading this group, I believe is probably a Norton issue. Kinko's doesn't exactly allow you to mess with Norton on their computers). My home computer is running Pub 97, which, naturally, won't open it, either. I would be happy to buy the correct version, only I don't know which version originally created the file. I'm only running Win98 at home. I see some of you are offering to convert the file. If that is a possibility in my case, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Sorry Ian. Unfortunately, no version of Publisher comes with a macro recorder.

However, you can use Shortcut Manager for Publisher, available at
 http://www.**--****.com/ , to assign keyboard shortcuts to commands in
Publisher, and you can use the Visual Basic editor to write macros.
