How do I recover a Microsoft Publisher autosave file?

I am wondering how to recover a .tmp publisher file.  The program crashed while the file was open and didn't give the option to recover upon opening again.  Autosave was set to every 10 min.

Thank you,
Urgent help needed.

Q1. What version of Publisher are you using?

Q2. Was the file that you are trying to recover one that you had previously saved or a new file that you were just stating to work on?

v. 2007

The file was open from a previous file and then saved as a different name.

The progarm then crashed.  we found a .tmp file in the same folder along with the old first saved version
but were unable to open it.  I'm not sure what it is but the time properties are about when the program crashed.

Try this. Take the .temp file that you have and right click on it.  Then rename the file to .put (giving it a name that is different then anything else in that folder.)  Once the file is renamed go ahead and see if you can open it using Publisher.

Did you mean to change the file extension to .pub?
I tried .put and .pub  neither would open with publisher.
Any other ideas?
Thank you

I am sorry about the typo earlier.  Yes I did mean .pub.

From the research I have done, I have not been able to find a way to convert the .tmp file or to open it.  The only other thing that I can suggest to try is open Publisher, go to File, and choose open, then in the type window select all types (this should show all the files in the folder) and then select the .tmp file and see if it will open. (Of course you will have to rename the file back to .tmp first.) If this does not work then it does not appear that the file can be opened or recovered.

Maybe some one else knows something I don't and have not been able to find.
