    Extract Soundtrack (Powerpoint 2003)

    I have a .pps file with an embedded soundtrack. Is there any way to extract this soundtrack to play on its own or use in an other application? I suspect the source was a .mp3 file but have no way of verifying that.

    Cheers,
    Regards,
    PaulB

    Open the .pps file from within PowerPoint (not from Windows Explorer).
    Select File | Save As...
    Select Web Page (*.htm, *.html) as file type.
    Save the file, then close it.

    Start Windows Explorer and open the folder where you saved the presentation as a web page.
    It should contain a subfolder whose name is <filename > Files.
    This subfolder will contain all the graphics, sound etc. as separate files.

    It's very handy. The same method also works to extract pictures from an Excel workbook or Word document.
