Yes, I can email it. I work with Corel X3 but not even my CS3 software will open it. I would prefer it to be a pdf....

mike is sort of right...there are some issues with the file and while not totally corrupt, it will not open in Illy cs3 or cs4 or corel x3 or x4. I did take the file into some proprietary software and finally transfered to X3 and sent it off to Raul...hopefully he will let us know if it worked for him

Taken from....File Extension .EPS Details



The EPS file type is primarily associated with 'Encapsulated PostScript'. There are two distinct types of .EPs files, one of which is a vector based graphics file and can be opened and easily edited for type, color, etc. in Adobe Illustrator or PC vector based programs like Corel Draw. They can be CMYK color, or flat pantone color based. These files could be "placed' or "imported" into Pagemaker (or Word, Quark, etc.), but not opened by it. They can be almost infinitely scaled in size without degrading the output because they are vector based. The other is an .EPS photo file, flattened, set resolution "picture" type file. It can be opened in PhotoShop or other image editing programs, also placed or imported into Pagemaker (or Word, Quark, etc.), but it will be significantly degraded if scaled beyond the set resolution. These are usually CMYK files, or can be set as Pantone duo-tone, tri-tone files. The initial characters for the EPS format (C5 D0 D3 C6) only works for DOS EPS files. A better magic value (initial characters) may be "%!PS" (25 21 50 53). %!PS does not always appear at the start of the file (though for Unix's ps2epsi it does), but should appear near the start of the file. It should have a version after it, e.g., "%!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0".

Thanks for the help! I got out of the bind today. I had never had a problem with EPS files, but there is always a first time ;)
