    How to make PowerPoint only read-in? (2003)

    I have created a test question using PowerPoint 2003, to transmit it to another teacher, and I want to save it a read only copy before transmitting, so that others can not edit it and some other troubles can be avoided. Does this feasible? If feasible, then are there any relatively easy ways to achieve this? Looking forward to your answers¡*

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    Open the presentation.
    Select Tools | Options...
    Activate the Security tab.
    Specify a password in the 'Password to modify' box and press Enter.
    You'll be asked to enter the password again.
    Click OK.
    Save the presentation.
    Next time the presentation is opened, PowerPoint will ask for the password. Without the password, the presentation can only be opened as read-only.

    As I know, there¡¯re four ways could keep the ppt as read only:
    1. Save the PowerPoint presentation slides as images (then use Windows Movie
    Maker to combine the images into video).
    2. Package the presentation as CD.
    3. Save the presentation as .html format.
    4. Save .ppt as .pps.
