    I wish to use PPT 2003 templates in 2007 but seem unable to achive this.

    Is there a way to achieve this as I have some very good templates that I would like to keep using?

    Have you tried saving the 2003 templates as 2003 presentations, then opening them in 2007 and then saving them as 2007 templates?

    Edit: If your 2003 templates contain any macros, this COULD be your problem.

    2003 pot files should work in 2007

    Either New > From existing and browse to the pot file
    OR to apply to a presentation
    Design Tab > More button just right of the theme thumbnails > Browse for Themes (it will find pot files as well as thmx files)
