Our administrative secretary designs a newsletter every month in publisher to print out, and also emails it to me so I can add it to our website. In the past I have selected all and copied and pasted it into Front Page. I've also used the Save as Web Page option but it doesn't work as well.....things line up differently than in the original and is hard to read.

Now we've both switched to Office XP as well as Publisher XP and I cannot get it to work for the life of me. If I use the Save as Web Page, the result is a jumbled mess of graphics and text, and you can't read anything. If I copy all and paste into Front Page, it will paste either only the graphics or only the text....never both, and never in the place where it should be. I've also tried capturing a screen shot and saving it as a jpeg to use on the webpage, but the results are pretty ugly to look at, and also I end up with a huge file that takes forever to load.

I've also tried, in Publisher, to save the file as a different type. But there's not much to choose from. I tried to save as a Word document but it will save text only. I've tried just opening the Publisher file in Front Page but that doesn't work either.

Anyone have any ideas? It HAS to be an easy thing, I would think, but I sure can't figure it out.
TIA!

have you considered making the publisher doc into a pdf? Adobe Acrobat 5 runs 200-250 and creation is as simple as printing a file.

*******************************
THIS IS ADOBE ACROBAT ($200-250)
NOT ACROBAT READER (FREE)
*******************************

sorry if you misinterpreted...you need Adobe Acrobat...NOT Acrobat Reader...Adobe Acrobat allows you to make PDFs...basically after you install it you be able to choose Acrobat Distiller as a printer.

correct...here is a quick walkthrough of what you would do...

Open the doc in Publisher
Print the doc to distiller (you will be prompted to enter a file name for the PDF)
Post the PDF on your webserver.

Thats about it...

Hadn't thought of that. Now, how do I go about doing that? I tried the "Save As" within Publisher but that's not an option. Also tried opening the file with Acrobat Reader but it won't open it.

Oh, sorry...didn't read close enough. So...using the distiller as a printer would basically just save it to a file? Then would I be able to have that file on the website for viewing? I'm thinking we have Acrobat somewhere around here...
