The best way would be to get your friend to resend the file as a GEDCOM file.

They will need to create the file using these steps:

Destination: FTW
Version: 5.5
Character Set: ANSEL
and check the "Abbreviate Tags" box.

With a GEDCOM you can import it into a new database, examine it and select what you need. They must however, use the above steps for the GEDCOM to be readable in PAF 5 - no others.
