There is supposed to be a document recovery task pane in Publisher 2003.
This information is in the help file.
I cannot find it. I am tring to recover a corrupted Publisher file.

This is for an office application that is not working properly.

This is not my problem, I have a corrupted Publisher file that will not
open. I can open all my other Publisher files with Publisher.

Publisher creates temp files, in Windows Explorer input %temp% in the address bar.
Is the file from another version of Publisher?
There are some 2000 publications I cannot open with 2003, but will open when I use
2000.
Probably it will be a graphic corruption, open Publisher, view, Picture display,
check "hide pictures", try opening the publication again.
You can recover the text. Open, files of type, scroll down to recover text from any
file...

The file I am trying to open was created in Publisher 2003.

When I try to open the file, I get a message that publisher cannot open the
file.

I have looked in the folder where a backup version should have been saved
but it is not there.

The recovery Task Pane will only appear when Publisher recognizes a file
that needs recovering. This is not something that you can initiate (unless
you purposely crash on a file).

Also from Publisher Help:

When you restart a Microsoft Office program after a power failure or similar
problem, the program automatically opens any recovered files. If for some
reason the recovery file didn't open, you can open it yourself.
1.. On the Standard toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that
you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, click Customize on the
Tools menu, and then click the Toolbars tab.), click Open .
2.. In the folder list, locate and double-click the folder where recovered
files are stored.
The location is usually C:\documents and settings\<username>\Application
Data\Microsoft\<program name>.

3.. In the Files of type box, click All Files.
Each recovered file is named "AutoRecovery save of file name" and has the
program file name extension.

4.. Click the name of the file you want to recover, and then click Open.
5.. On the Standard toolbar, click Save .
6.. In the File name box, enter the name of the existing file.
7.. When you see a message asking whether or not you want to replace the
existing file, click Yes.

Hey Brian -

For some reason your post ended up with attachments. I know you well enough
that I know you didn't mean to do that.

Yeah..it was a copy/paste of the help file, which is HTML. Sorry. I should
have shaken up the post by switching from plain text, to rich text back to
plain text to dump them.
