Microsoft Publisher

I really, really need help. I am using a new MS Publisher 2010 software and it's so different from 2007 Publisher.

I've done a 10 page newsletter and I'm trying to open it but I'm getting a message saying that the one I'm trying to open is locked and I have to unlock it.

I have absolutely no idea how it got locked and, for sure, do not know how to unlock it.

Please, someone help me. I don't want to do these 10 pages over.

RE: Microsoft Publisher

Is it a Publisher file (.pub) or a .pdf file? I'm away from my computer with Publisher 2010 on it but have never seen the option to lock (or unlock) a file.

RE: Microsoft Publisher

Are you using a trial version of Microsoft Office?

RE: Microsoft Publisher

Often the lock is caused by an improper shutdown. Open it up, do a "Save As" and save it under a different name. You should then be able to open the newly saved file for editing.
