    Run Slideshow on Open (Powerpoint 2000)

    I want to send an e-mail with a presentation attached that will automatically open and run (without the PowerPoint application being obviously open) when the attachment is opened. How do I create a auto-running (if you will) presentation?

    Use File | Save As to save your presentation as a PowerPoint show (*.pps) and attach that file. Note, there is no difference between a ppt and a pps file except the file type, so you can just rename the file from xxx.ppt to xxx.pps. HTH --Sam

    Thanks! I couldn't come up with the right terminology.
