Hi

I am unable to open some attachments which have been sent to me in PPS format. I have both Powerpoint 2007 and the powerpoint viewer. When I try to open the attachments it says Powerpoint cannot read the outline no text converter is installed for this type of file. Any suggestions please.

According to the link click here you need to install updates for your version of MSOffice; about half way down the link, your error message is reported and a solution offered.

Hi Diodorus Siculus. I will give that a try. I thought I had all my applications updated.

Many thanks

I have just checked and with the update site which shows that my applications are up to date

Cheers

Bit of a strange one then... maybe if you post the exact wording of the error message, someone will be able to help.

Hi

Sorry I got a bit fed up with it and deleted it. It came from Australia and was probably not important. Although I did have this problem some time ago everything seems to have been OK until now. I will mark it as resolved and if it happens again I will relate the exact message and see if you can help further.

Many thanks
