Note: All steps are given for Microsoft Office 2003. You will need to adjust them for office 2007.

The easiest way to do this would be to go to the "insert" menu then click "Hyperlink" at the bottom of the menu. A dialog bax should appear navigate to the powerpoint file you want to open and/or return to then click "OK" now when you put your cursor over the cell this link is in it should turn to a hand if you click it will take you to the presentation.

P.S. We techs love when you rate us.

If you want a more professional way. Go to the "view" menu and expand the submenu "toolbars" at the bottom of this menu click "customize". A window will appear. while this is open if you click on buttons in the toolbars it will only select them, not run the command. Click the "toolbars" tab in the customize window. Now click "new" in the right hand column. A box will appear for you to type any name you like (it may not contain spaces). type the name then click "OK". A new empty toolbar should appear somewhere on the screen you can mave this by clicking the title bar at the top of it and dragging it. You can even move it to the top of the screen with the other tool bars. Now click the "Commands" tab in the custom toolbars window. Scroll down the list in the left hand column until you came to an item named "macros" click it and in the column on the right hand side should be a button called "custom button" that has a smily face beside it. click and drag and drop this in the new empty toolbar you just created. Now right click on the new button you have just drop and in the pop up menu go to the bottom and expand "assign hyperlink" in the submenu that appears click open. A new dialog bax will appear. Navigate to the presentation you want to open then click "OK". Now click close on the other "Customize" dialog box that is open and presto if you click the custom button you just made it should open your presentation.
Thanks for your patience. Sorry the explanation got so long.

P.S. We techs love when you rate us.

Corrupt Pptx files. Need to repair them. Please help!


1st. Try to find the temporary file when you creating it
When you edit a presentation, PowerPoint creates a temporary copy of the file. This temporary file is named PPT####.tmp.
Note #### represents a random four-digit number.
This temporary file may reside in the same folder as the presentation. Alternatively, it may reside in the temporary file folder.
Step 1: Look for temporary file in the documents folder
Windows Vista
Click Start, and then click Documents.
Look for a file that is named PPT####.tmp.
Windows XP
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type %userprofile%\My Documents.
Click OK.
Look for a file that is named PPT####.tmp.
If you do not find the file, you must search for it. To do this, go to step 2.
If you do find the file, go to step 3.
Step 2: Search for the temporary file
Windows Vista
Click Start, and then type PPT*.tmp in the Start Search box.
Press ENTER.
Microsoft Windows XP
Click Start, and then click Search.
In the Named box or in the Search for files or folders named box, type PPT*.tmp.
In the Look in box, click My Computer, and then click Find Now or Search Now.
Step 3: Rename the file, and then try to open the file in PowerPoint
Right-click the file, and then click Rename.
Change the old file name extension from .tmp to .pptx so that the file name resembles the following file name:
PPT####.pptx
Start PowerPoint.
In PowerPoint 2007 click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open. In PowerPoint 2010 click the File menu, and then click Open.
Browse to the folder that contains the renamed file.
Try to open the file in PowerPoint.
Note More than one file may correspond to the temporary file that was created the last time that you saved the presentation. In this case, you may have to open each file to see whether one is the temporary copy of the presentation.

Powerpoint 2007


Has the powerpoint document been saved as an office 2007 document or as a prior version? in office 2007 in order to open it in 2003 it must be saved as a prior version of office. You can download a patch to read newer versions, but that is not always the most reliable process.

Macro in excel


Open up your Excel and hit ALT + F11. This opens up the VBA editor.
You can then right click and click New Module and write your macro in there.

Macro on excel


Macros are a timesaving feature that allow you to record a sequence of actions that you do in excel, and replay them back later.

You give each macro a name, and you can invoke them later, and Excel will "do" whatever it is you did when you recorded the macro.

To record a new macro:
1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Record New Macro...
3) Type in a name for your macro and hit OK

(A new toolbar will popup with a "stop" button on it. Excel is now recording everything you do)

4) Do something, like, for example, select some cells and make them bold.
5) Click the "stop" button.


Now your macro has been recorded! You can play it back later by:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to Tools->Macros->Macros...
3) Select your macro from the list
4) Click "Run"

The actions you performed earlier will now be executed.



-------


Macros are written in Visual Basic for Applications, or "VBA". It is a programming language which uses the Excel Object Model to perform various actions. You can edit and create custom macros by writing the code manually in VBA. To do this:

1) Open Excel
2) Go to tools->macros->macros...
3) Select an already existing macro
4) Click "Edit"

(The visual basic editor will open, showing you the code for your macro)

At this point you are writing a program in Visual Basic. To learn how to edit macros, you need to learn visual basic, as well as the specific quirks related to excel macros in visual basic.

Recording a macro, and then using it as a template while you edit it is a common trick for making macros manually more quickly.

If you are not familiar with VB, I would not suggest attempting to edit your macros in any but the most simplest of ways. If you're brave, you can try to learn about editing macros in VBA here:
