    Power Point Show (2000)

    When I send Power Point Shows via email the fonts change and the sound I inserted does not play.

    I would say that the receiving party does NOT have the font you have used. You may need to embed them.
    As for the sound, are you using a insert file or insert link to add sound? The receiver is NOT getting the sound, so I would think you are linking to a file and it is not being sent.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Thanks. I got it on embedding the font. As far as the sound goes how do I link the sound file? On the menu bar I select insert, movies and sounds, sounds from gallery. I select my downloaded clips and insert the one I want.

    For my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15> worth, you could try Pack and Go which is under the File menu. This packages all the elements of your presentation together in one bundle which you can send.
    Select the option and then follow the wizard.
    Hope this helps

    Only WAV sounds are embedded, and then only those smaller than the setting you've specified in Tools/Options/Link Sound Files Greater Than XXX KB." Before inserting your WAV sound, go to that setting and put 50000 in the box. That will then embed any WAV files smaller than 50MB.

    If your sound is not a WAV, you'll have better luck not inserting it through the clip gallery. Instead, find the file on your harddrive, copy it, and paste it in the folder along with your presentation. Then insert the file. It will be linked, but the link will at least be relative then. That way, when you send your PPT file along with the sound file, PPT will know where to look for it. Otherwise, it's looking for the full path to your clip gallery -- about a hundred levels deep and pretty much impossible to recreate on a different machine.

    I'd do that (paste the sound file into the same folder) even if I were going to use Pack and Go, as Pack and Go is notorious for not being able to find all the linked files when they're really buried.
