    Opening PPS file (Outlook 2000)

    <font face="Comic Sans MS">text</font face=comic><font color=blue>text</font color=blue>I have been trying to open a PPS file someone sent to me. The only way I have been able to open this file is with HyperAccess Graphics Viewer, and it shows a single pic instead of a slide show, or movie. I do not have Power Point. Is there a plug in I can get to open this and see the whole slideshow? I have tried to change the file association , but mabe I didn't do that the way I was supposed to. Will a program like Quick Time or Media Player open these type files?

    You can view the presentation with the PowerPoint Viewer which can be downloaded <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> from Microsoft at http://office.microsoft.com/download.../Ppview97.aspx. HTH --Sam

    Thanks Sam! I looked all over MS web site but never found that Viewer there. Also, I had read about the limits with this viewer, and thoight someone there might know of something better to use for opening these type files.

    It was very hard to find. It is very limited. It is a very sore point. I know of no alternatives. "Where do you want to go today?" <img src=/S/sarcasm.gif border=0 alt=sarcasm width=15 height=15>
