    Can't import from Word 2007 (Powerpoint 2007)

    I'm following the right procedure: I have a saved Word .doc file that uses Heading 1, 2, etc. In PP, I go to New Slide, then Slides from Outline, then choose my Word file and click Import. At the bottom of the screen, I see (in what I think is the status bar) "Powerpoint is converting Test.doc" and a progress bar that shows activity. But nothing gets imported--I see nothing new in Slide or Outline view. And if I repeat the procedure again, interestingly, I don't see the status bar message and progress bar. What the heck is happening here?

    Hard to say what's happening.

    Why is the 2007 word doc not a docx file?

    Having said that both doc and docx files import as outlines in PowerPoint 2007 here. Are you sure you have Title 1 and 2 set correctly?

    Oops! You're right. I don't know what was wrong with my styles, but when I overwrote them, the import worked. Thanks!
