I received a press credential document I need to print and bring with me to the Speedway saturday night and I can not open the attatchment they sent me. has anyone ever heard of a .indd file??? This is what they sent it as, but I can not open it on my pc. Anyone have any ideas, or know what I would need to open it?

Yup. That's an Adobe InDesign Document.

So how do I open it?

The only way to open it is with InDesign.

Try making an account on Adobe.com and getting the free trial to get the document open.

i would email them back and tell them to send it in a usable format. im willing to bet not too many people have that software. there is probably a pdf version they just didnt send.

I have InDesign but have never used it. If you send me the file I'll see if I can convert it to PDF for you. I'll PM you my email address.

I got them to resend it in a different file type. That was a good idea nvr2low, why could'nt I think of that LOL!!!

Thanks to all for your ideas and help, I appreciate it!!

i work with different formats at work all the time, but 90% of the documents get converted to pdf so i was pretty sure they would have a more usable format.
