Can't open a 2002 ppt file in ppt 2003

Created a ppt presentation on ppt 2003. Showed it to my parents on their computer - use 2002 ppt and changed some things. Now it won't play on ppt 2003 unless I open it in the viewer.

Need to show it at school on ppt 2003.

    Will it open or do you get an error message? I was thinking if it opened, try using save as command and choose PowerPoint 97-2003. Then see if it will play in 2003.

SOURCE: powerpoint 2003 needed, not ppt viewer

Unfortunately, you are going to need to purchase Power Point 2003.

You can still purchase Power Point 2003 from a number of sites like
Yahoo shopping, MSN shopping etc.

If Insert ' Slides from File doesn't work and Open Office's Impress doesn't work, then the file is kaput. Start looking for your backup or in your email "sent" folder (if you emailed it ?at any point, that is). This program works well. I hope it will help you. http://www.powerpoint.repair/

Hi,
Generally, once a file is corrupt, it's gone. So what I'd do, is just recreate the changes using one of your slightly older versions of the file. This time taking care to make sure you know exactly which one you're editing. Maybe saving a copy to a USB flash drive in addition to uploading a copy somewhere.
Use PowerPoint Repair Toolbox. The PowerPoint repair tool reads and analyzes the damaged files and exports data the restored data to Microsoft PowerPoint. For more:

Powerpoint can't open the type of file represented by........


1. Try some of the things listed below. But first make a backup copy of your presentation and use it, not your original file. Never try any of these recovery techniques on your only copy of a presentation.
Things to try:
-If you run PowerPoint 2003, choose Help, About Microsoft PowerPoint from the main menu bar. If the About screen doesn't indicate that you have SP1 (Service Pack 1) or higher, you should update your copy of PowerPoint. Choose Help, Check For Updates. When the Office Downloads page opens in your browser, click "Check for Updates" and apply the recommended hotfixes and/or service packs.
-If you run Windows XP and have installed SP1, see Files open as Read-Only after installing Windows XP SP1, Other file/path related problems
-Open a blank presentation (You can apply the template used for the damaged file, if applicable. That might help cut down on reformatting.)
-From the main menu, choose Insert, Slides from File (or if you use PowerPoint 2007, Home tab, New Slides (bottom of button), Reuse Slides.
-Try to insert slides individually if you're not able to insert the whole thing
2. If your file became corrupted when PowerPoint or your computer crashed, there may be a temporary version of the file in your TEMP directory. If so, you can try the aforementioned Insert, Slides From File and browse to that file. Or you can try changing the file's extension to PPT and see if you can open it from within PowerPoint using File, Open. You could also do a search for *.TMP files on the off chance that it's not in your TEMP directory.
3. If nothing else works, try opening the presentation in Word to see if you can at least recover the text:
-Start Word and choose File, Open
-Choose file type "Recover text from any document"
-Edit the file as needed
4. If all these three methods don't work, then use third party software PowerPoint Repair Toolbox https://www.repairtoolbox.com/powerpointrepair.html

I want to open powerpoint presentation.


then, go to format -> slide design, choose to show all documents, and choose the corrupt powerpoint file. now, go to insert -> slides from file, and select the corrupt powerpoint file. make sure you are set to insert all slides, and then import. if that works, great! i suspect, however, that you might crash at that point. if so, try repeating the process, inserting specific slides one by one until you find the problem one. after that, save the file, making sure that fast saves are off (in preferences / save).
if you are unable to open your powerpoint files then try pptx viewer tool. this utility recovers your corrupt and damaged powerpoint presentations (.ppt, .pot, .pps, pptx and ppsx formats) from ms powerpoint files. http://www.pptx.viewertool.com/

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.
2nd.
PPTX Repair Kit is the only online PPTX repair tool that you will ever need to restore the contents of a damage PowerPoint presentation after a system crash. Fast, intuitive, stable and thorough, it is absolutely irreplaceable for anyone trying to find out how to repair PPTX file online.
