I am looking for some freeware that will open my publisher files. I used to have Microsoft 2003. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have Windows 8.1 and I usually use Chrome.

I do not know how successful the conversion will be but there is an online converter here (http://www.zamzar.com/convert/pub-to-pdf/). It will convert your .pub files to other formats of your choosing. You can try .pub to pdf or pub to doc. There is also a pub to html (http://www.zamzar.com/convert/pub-to-html/) converter.

Used the zamzar one. changed it to a pdf it didn't work for that all scrambled. It does let me see what it is when I convert to doc. but it still isn't right. I have some business cards I need to print but it isn't working.

Did you try the pub to html conversion? Unfortunately Microsoft does not have a Publisher viewer.

JohnC, I was going to suggest either Libre or Open Office suites for the OP. But, those won't read Publisher material, correct?

Unfortunately, no. Publisher is a proprietary format. For the best scenario the OP needs access to Publisher so they can export the pub file to a pdf or doc format. Maybe their local library has Publisher available.

The other option is to install the trial version of Office 365 (https://products.office.com/en-us/try) which has publisher and use that.
