    Urgent help!! Mac to PC issues...

    I have a Powerpoint presentation that was created on a Mac... saved onto Powerpoint... onto a memory stick...

    Now I need to use the memory stick in my non-Mac PC to show the Presentation, but fonts / layout / etc have changed and I cannot present in that format.

    Any ideas???!!!

    Thanks!


    I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.... It was them that started me drinking.

    Don't know what the Mac was, but just have Windows 2000 here (and Powerpoint 2000).

    That will be the first problem with win2k and powerpoint 2k as I am sure that Office only went to Mac in 2004 and 2008 versions and the Mac would of saved natively into those versions files and formatting unless you told the Mac version of office that you wanted Office 97 to 2000 version.

    Mmmm... I thought it must be an age thing! I don't think the person who saved from the Mac knew what PP version we were using so that wouldn't have happened.
    I guess there isn't much we can do then

    Thanks for your help anyway peeps!

    Re: Urgent help!! Mac to PC issues...

    If you have access to email you could always send me the Mac version of your file and I will try to save it out as an earlier version to see if that helps for you. Just pm me and I will send you my email address, or an address I can get the file from and I will see what I can do from the Mac for you

    That's assuming Sair has access to the PC to install the software.

    Thanks for all your help everyone - I will know for next time
    Our IT department managed to sort something in the end but it still wasn't quite right

    (and the same lovely IT department block internet access outside the hours of 13.00 - 14.00 so I didn't manage to read the rest of your advice!! )


    I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.... It was them that started me drinking.
