Having trouble opening PowerPoint 2007 presentations

Postby brahma55 » Tue Apr 29, 2008 3:22 am

I have been sent some presentations to review. However, they are in the PowerPoint 2007 format. I have no problem opening earlier versions of PowerPoint. However, when I go to open 2007, I am asked what filter to use by OOo. I have tried several with no success. Any suggestions?

Previous thread:
* MS Office 2007 file format (docx, xslx, pptx, ppsx)

My short list (all these do .docx and .pptx)
* odf-converter-integrator to convert PowerPoint 2007 formats for OpenOffice.org
* OxygenOffice with Word '07 import
* OpenOffice.org 3.0 coming September 2008
* Zamzar as an online Office 2007 converter

Also, you may want to install the Office 2007 fonts.

Also, search this forum, Google, or OOoSearch for keywords like .docx, pptx, OOXML, or OpenXML.
