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

How to make power presentatio?


  • If Office PowerPoint 2007 is already running, save and close any open presentations, and then exit and restart PowerPoint 2007.

Find links to information about saving presentations in the See Also section.

  • If Office PowerPoint 2007 isn't already running, start it now.
In the Slide pane, you can work directly on individual slides. za001093949.gif Dotted borders identify placeholders, where you can type text or insert pictures, charts, and other objects. za001093950.gif The Slides tab shows a thumbnail version of each full size slide shown in the Slide pane. After you add other slides, you can click a thumbnail on the Slides tab to make the slide appear in the Slide pane. Or you can drag thumbnails to rearrange the slides in your presentation. You can also add or delete slides on the Slides tab. za001093951.gif In the Notes pane, you can type notes about the current slide. You can hand out your notes to your audience or refer to your notes in Presenter view when you give your presentation. Note By default, Office PowerPoint 2007 applies the Blank Presentation template, which appears in the preceding illustration, to new presentations. Blank Presentation is the simplest and most generic of the templates in Office PowerPoint 2007. Blank Presentation is a good template to use when you first start working with PowerPoint because it is straightforward and can be adapted to many presentation types. To create a new presentation that is based on the Blank Presentation template, click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, click New, click Blank and recent under Templates, and then double-click Blank Presentation under Blank and recent.
After you open the Blank Presentation template, only a small portion of the Notes pane is visible. To see a larger portion of the Notes pane so that you have more room to type in it, do the following:
  1. Point to the top border of the Notes pane.
  2. When the pointer becomes a za010205206.gif, drag the border up to make a little more room for your speaker notes, as shown in the following illustration.

Name and save your presentation As with any software program, it is a good idea to name and save your presentation right away and then to save your changes frequently while you work:
  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, point to Save As, and then do one of the following:
    • For a presentation that can be opened only in Office PowerPoint 2007, click PowerPoint Presentation.
    • For a presentation that can be opened in either Office PowerPoint 2007 or earlier versions of PowerPoint, click PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation.

If you choose this option, you cannot use any of the features that are new in Office PowerPoint 2007.

  1. In the Save As dialog box, in the Save in list, select the folder or other location where you want to save your presentation.
  2. In the File name box, type a name for your presentation, or do nothing to accept the default file name, and then click Save.

Add, rearrange, and delete slides The single slide that is provided automatically in your presentation has two placeholders, one formatted for a title and the other formatted for a subtitle. The arrangement of placeholders on a slide is called a layout. Office PowerPoint 2007 also provides other types of placeholders, such as those for pictures and SmartArt graphics.
When you add a slide to your presentation, you can do the following to choose a layout for the new slide at the same time:
  1. On the Slides tab, click just below the single slide that already appears there.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click the arrow next to New Slide.

za001093948.gif The name identifies the content that each layout is designed for. za001093949.gif Placeholders that display colored icons can contain text, but you can also click the icons to automatically insert objects, including SmartArt graphics and clip art.
  1. Click the layout that you want for your new slide.

The new slide now appears both on the Slides tab, where it is highlighted as the current slide, and in the Slide pane. Repeat this procedure for each new slide that you want to add.

Tip If you want your new slide to have the same layout that the preceding slide has, you can just click New Slide instead of clicking the arrow next to it.

How can I add a .wav file to an entire PowerPoint slideshow? I only know how to add sound to a single slide and want the file to play through the entire presentation. Thanks in advance for your help.


Since you have not mention the power point version that you are currently using I give you the method to embed sound in your entire slide show for both PowerPoint 2003 and PowerPoint 2007.

Lets start with PowerPoint 2003 : Go to the slide where you want to initiate the sound track in .wav form.(1st slide is the default).

Go to Insert> Movies and Sound> Sound from file
Select your .wav sound file and click ok.
After you click OK you will se a dialogue box appearing asking you "How do you want the sound to play". You have to specify that. If you are not sure select "Automatically" so when you land on that slide during the slide show your music or sound will start automatically.

Select Slide Show ->Custom Animation to enter the Custom Animation pane. Confirm Your soundtrack is listed below in the pane.
  • In the drop-down list of the sound, choose Effect Options. Then the Play Sound interface appears. In the Effect tab, click the radio button beside Stop Playing After XXX slides (which indicates how many slides you want this song to play across) to enter the number of slides you intend to add. For example, you can enter a number from 1 to 999 for this field. Then the sound will play throughout the specified slides.
  • Next, check the settings in the Timing tab. To play automatically, you can set to Start After Previous with a 0-second delay. Click OK to exit the dialog box.

  • Then go to Sound Settings tab, adjust the sound volume as you like. You can also tick to hide sound icon during slide show if you don't want it appear.
Now your sound will play from the first slide till the last.

Life is much much easier with PowerPoint 2007
  • On the slide, click Insert to pick the Sound drop-down list on the very right below the tab. Select Sound from File in the list and choose the specified sound track from your hard drive.
  • Click OK and a message prompts, saying How do you want the sound to start in the slide show? Click Automatically.
  • Now click the sound icon to display the Options tab. Click on the tab, and set Play across slides for Play Sound.
  • sound-2007.gif
At the moment, it is time for you to play the entire slide show while enjoying this pleasant sound score.
NOTE:
  • The sound you insert must be as long as your slide show. That is, if the slide show lasts 5 minutes, your soundtrack should also be at that length. Otherwise, the sound would be cut off until the slide show ends.
  • It is highly recommend that you take PowerPoint 2007 for your convenience.

Method 2.
Insert -> Hyperlink, choose the video file you want to insert, and then click ok. After do this, you can click the hyperlink to view the video when present the slide show.

4. Right click the inserted Shockwave Flash control, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Movie property > type the full drive path in the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), including the file name (e.g. C:a.swf) or URL (e.g. http://www.a.com/b.swf)
