Turning an Assembly into a Part

My boss asked me to find out how to turn a pump assembly into a single part. When we downloaded the file, we had no idea how big the file was going to be. Because of the large file size, we can't open the file. So we want to turn it into a single part to be able to open it. Can we do this before opening it in SolidWorks? The only way I know how to do convert an assembly to a part is to go to File->SaveAs and make the assembly a part by saving it as .sldprt. But this only works once the assembly is open, which we cannot do. Any way around this? Thanks!
