how to read a *.prn file

I saved a 87 page PDF file to my desktop as a .prn file, this was the choice that I had instead of printing out all the 87 pages.

How can I open this to read it only, not to print?

Win98
word97

Thanks for any help, Mike

There is only one way:
You need Acrobat distiller, wich is not free. It comes with Pagemaker/Photoshop  or can be purchased alone (Adobe Acrobat 4.o).
Distiller makes PDFs out of prn-, eps- and ps-files.


it is not possible for word97 unless you can convert pdf to word 97

I am not sure if you really can as the PDF format is not readable to word. You could change the extension of the file from the .prn extension to the .pdf extension, and then Adobe would open it.

If you want to try in Word, you need to change the files of type to ALL FILES and then navigate to the file. I am gonna try right now to see if it works.

If you would like, you can email me the file and I can get it in a format so you can view it offline.

Thank you for the offer, but I think the file is too big, 40.7MB.
This isn't something that I have to have, it just would have made it easier with it on my computer than going on line to read the file.

Thanks again, Mike
