Convert PUB files to a PDF or Word file

I have a PUB file (Microsoft Publisher document) that I cannot view. Are there any trusted (free) programs I can use to convert this into a document type my computer can open?

Hi Nichole,
I've been using calibre for many years:
https://calibre-ebook.com/

Great piece of software...free and open source. Regards, Joe

Edit: I may have misunderstood your question. I was thinking e-pub, as in e-book, but now I'm thinking that you may have meant a Microsoft Publisher document. Which is it?

Hi Joe,
Sorry I didn't clarify. It is indeed a Microsoft Publisher document.

Hi Nichole,
Thanks for clarifying. I haven't tried it with a PUB file (works great with lots of other MS Office file types), but the excellent, free, open source LibreOffice should be able to do it:

Here's a forum thread on it:

I went the ZamZar route.  Upon trying to save it as a PDF it only saved the first page and duplicated it 9 times.  When I saved it as a .doc all 9 pages were present. Thanks everyone!
