    Compatibility Problem (2007 and 2002)

    Is PPT 2007 backward compatible to PPT 2002? Client received a PPT 07 presentation and when she attempts to open it in PPT02 she gets, "Microsoft Powerpoint has encountered a problem and needs to close". Not sure if it is a compatibility problem or corruption of the presentation.

    Thanks.

    I would not expect it to crash, but there are features in 2007 that are not present in earlier versions. Powerpont 2007 includes the option to save files in an earlier format, so you could ask the person sending the presentation to use that option. You can also try the PowerPoint Viewer 2007. Another option is to install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats but you will still lose some features
