It's been years since I worked on a Mac and I'm a little lost. (My last Mac ran os 7, I think.)

Somehow I've ended up with a Pages file. After doing a bit of research, I haven't come up with any solution that will let me open it on my windows or linux machines. I went to my mother's Mac and tried to open it there, but it tells me it was saved in an incompatible version of Pages. Her computer seems to be running 2.0.1.

Is there a way to tell what version of Pages saved this file so I can upgrade Mom's machine to it? Or some other way to pry the text out of a Pages file?

Thanks, Llama

That's odd. Why not just ask the person who created it? Or whoever was last able to read it? Are you even absolutely certain it is a Pages file?


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
