I have been having some troubles with my Corel Draw lately.  First off, I no longer have the software so unfortunately re-installing is not an option.  Im really hoping there is another way around it.  

First off, I saved a .cdr file as I usually do, I went to open it and it keeps telling me ERROR READING so and so file.  I have tried opening the BAK file but it keeps telling me to use a specific filter.  When opening a file I try clicking on "Filter Information" and says none available.  I have no clue about filtering or anything else.  I am pretty new with this program.  Im not sure if it matters but I also have Adobe PageMaker and QuarkXpress.  Is there anyway to export the file to one of these?  

I really dont want to have to buy any additional software (hopefully this wont happen again).  

I have honestly tried everything I can think of including burning the file onto disc and trying to open it from there.  

Any help what-so-ever would be greatly appreciated!
