Microsoft Powerpoint

Is it possible to purchase this programme as a stand alone = or is it only available as part of MS Office?

click here

but it's really not worth it, from a financial point of view. It's a matter of a few pennies more, (literally!) to get the MSOffice suite, click here , and you can install it on 3 computers.

I should have said that I have created a sllde presentation using Open Office - but the school where it's to be shown only has Powerpoint - which won't recognise the Open Office odp format. Can this be changed without knocking out the original slide show?

Point taken! Thanks!

OO - I think you have the option of saving in several formats, one of these may be powerpoint compatable.
I havent use that bit of OO yet.

You can choose to save as a powerpoint file from the "save as" file type drop down when saving in open office.

I think you can only save as a .ppt though, (a powerpoint FILE), and not as a .pps , (a powerpoint SLIDESHOW).

If you want it as a slideshow, just save as a .ppt file, and afterwards rename the file giving it a .pps ending!

You might want to download the microsoft powerpoint viewer to see how the show will look in powerpoint. You may find some of the transitions appear slightly different... e.g. different speeds, and fades might vary.
