    Default Microsoft Publisher conversion

    Hi guys, I have made a family tree in descending order, using Publisher and I want to send it to a relative as an attachment in an e-mail, unfortunatelywhen he opens it, it is just not accessable, it shows lines of data instead, is there any way of converting this so he can open it in it's original form. He uses Microsoft XP but doesn't have publisher.
    The truth is out there, but where is it?

    As far as i am aware, without publisher installed on the target PC, you cannot open publisher files.

    You could look into converting to .pdf
    Always remember you're unique.

    You could try converting it to an html document, they should then be able to view it with a Webbrowser, here is the site that explains how,

    once converted, send as and attachment to your Email .
