Hi

I do not think you can, .pub is a format specifically

Ask your friend to send it in another format

"I believe MS Publisher files can be converted to compatible formats with Publisher itself, so that they can be opened with OpenOffice.org, Scribus etc.

Here's what other things files with .pub extension could be:
