I have a bunch of publisher files I need to port over and cant find a program to open them with. I have tried keynote, pages, documents to go and quickoffice. Please tell me there is something out there instead of having to redo them all.

Sorry, Publisher uses a proprietary format that only Publisher itself could open. Im not aware of any application for an iPad that can open those files. There are some third-party services that purport to be able to convert Publisher files to .doc, but I dont know if those services work well. Otherwise youll have to copy out the objects and text in the Publisher file and paste them into a Word document which you could then open on the iPad in Pages, Documents To Go, or another app that can edit Word documents.
There are also products and services that say they can convert Publisher files to PDF, if you just need to be able to view them on the iPad.
Regards.

I recommend you convert the Publisher file into PDF, either with Adobe Acrobat or an alternative converter program. If you dont want to buy one of these converter programs, there are also free online services that do that too. Heres one such service: http://www.pdfonline.com/convert-pdf/.
