I have a logo that I was told needs the following requirements: a 320x231 in 8bit BMP.
I already created this Logo and using Coral, Paint or Publisher I would like to know how to measure this LOGO inorder to cut it down to size.

Thanks

In any of those programs you should be able to resize the file to those specs.

How would i measure the pixels in my file(LOGO) so that i can trim off any overage? using Microsoft Publisher would be easier for me. Lets say I have the picture (LOGO) loaded  and currently viewing it. How do I determine the Pixel size to see if It meets the requirement of 302 x 321?

First of all, Publisher is the wrong tool for the job.  You need a program that is more geared towards image files rather than print.  However, if you select the image and do Format | Picture you should get a dialog box with the current image properties.  There will be a way to convert from inches to cm or pixels.  

Once there, you want to scale the image to your preference.

If you can save the logo as a JPEG file and open it in Photoshop, you can reduce it to the specified pixel size (however, if the logo is not in proportion to 320 x 231 pixels, it may need to be cropped).
Additionally, in order to save it as an 8-bit bitmap, the file MUST be a grayscale image (which also can be done very easily in Photoshop.)
Publisher does not have the capability to do so, and I am not familiar with Corel Paint.
