    • You might have someone who still has an earlier version of PowerPoint on

      their system to update it for you. Being a 95 presentation, probably to

      large to email.

    • I know - it is just a pain to have to do this. I teach and I do not always

      use the same slide shows every semester. I appreciate the immediate

      responses!

    • How large is the ppt file? If it is not overly large, I'd be more than happy

      to convert it from a 95 to 97-2007 your choice as long as none of the

      material is sensitive.

    • Thank You, Micheal, for Your offer. We have about 40.000 files in older

      Office-formats whereof, about 25.000 in Office 95, about 15.000 in

      Powerpoint-Presentations and WORD-Handbooks. Where may I send them to have

      them converted? All of our former letters, a large part of our presentations-

      and handbook-archiv is in-accessible for Office 2007. I´m glad to have it

      tested since I may now decide not to updgrade from 2003 to any newer

      Office-version in my company. The same decides these days all of my collegues

      in other companies. Some of them prefer open-source because of that, since

      older office-files are accessible e.g. in open-office.

      Microsoft may learn: we users MUST have access to older files without

      restrictions. There are two main reasons to use computers: to work more

      effectively and to be able to access former datas without restrictions. As

      long as I can open PDFs from any year but not my Office-files after 5-10

      years, even the XPS-Format will not be intruduced in companies, at least not

      in europe ;-(((((

      We all would be very greatfull if microsoft would release a

      compatibility-pack for older files very urgently and would focus this problem

      in this and any later office-version as a main feature for

      business-customers.
