Subject:   Re: reading a microsoft publisher document

I opened it in Notepad. The file looks like it has a regular structure but it has symbols at the end of some lines. I could not save the file as .txt (I got a message saying sth like not enough memory to save....)

I tried reading the file into sas as if it's a text file. Failed. Luckily someone has the same file in .dat format. The lesson is .pub is a bad way to store and transfer data. :-(
