[Solved] calendar published in PP won't open with calendar

Postby josephray428 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 7:00 pm

new user -- instructor gave us a calendar in PPT and after opening file in impress, it shows the calendar template, but does not open/include the date entries. It will show the months of June, but there will be no entries on those dates. Opened the document in google docs, and everything was there. I uploaded the file to see if error happens with you. If its a user error, how might I change my settings in Impress?

I could see the complete file in MS PowerPoint viewer, converted it to ppt with MS XML Converter and then to odp using LibreOffice. The document looks fine in LibreOffice and almost right in OpenOffice.

no problem...didn't expect to be the same but sometimes you don't know until you ask. Thanks to both for responding and especially for the converting tip!
