    I am getting this error too when I try to ope a pub doc. Publisher 2002 sp2 opens fine, but as soon as I open a file -- bam! I wish I could tell you why; maybe someone else will help us. I've been all over google. Looks to me like something a critical update has broken.

    I have a work around, I had backed up my office settings through office tools. And did a restore of settings. This cured the problem. Interesting that uninstall and install and a repair could not correct it . But a restore of office settings cured it.
    A backup of office settings should be mandatory.

    Jerome,
    I discovered this too. Last night I did a Detect and Repair, but this time with both boxes checked. That fixed it! I agree it's rather puzzling why restoring to default settings would fix this, but I'm glad it does.

    I tried the suggestions on the Publisher problem and still can't get it to work. Any other ideas? Is it a user profile issue?
