This extension convert recursivly Microsoft Publisher document in OOo format (impress)

...but this not the perfect converter : I don't parse the pub file : I just use Publisher COM component.
So Publisher has to be installed !
Anyway, I think it can be usefull for a lot of people "captive" of Publisher.

it doesn't work if in the original publisher file:
-you have connected two or more text frames
-you have turned tables

it doesn't work well if text in a text frame is wrapped around a picture....

but it still can do a very good job of bulk converting ms publisher files in openoffice format, when your original files don't include the above...very helpful.
