Hi I have a large (129Mb) Publisher 98 document. It was created on a Win 98SE workstation on a network with a WinNT4.0 Server. The document was edited and resaved. Now it will not open. I get a dialogue box "Publisher cannot open the file" This is from the same station on which it was created and on any other w/station. It doesn't appear (according to the Server Manager) to be open anywhere else on the network. I've ran a Publisher Repair tool and it states that the document is not corrupt. I burned it to CD but Publisher will not open the CD version either. Any clues, I can happily provide any other technical info you require. This is a School Yearbook that has taken an age to produce. There is a previous back-up version that works perfectly but a lot of work has been done since this version and the printers deadline is fast approaching. Help!!

How much Ram is in the computer you are trying to open it on? Have you done a scandisk and defrag lately? What size is your swapfile now and does it have a limitation?

I will check that info for you, however I have successfully opened larger publisher files with similar content.
