    Can only see first and last slides (Powerpoint xp/97)

    Hi,

    I have a presentation that was created in PPT XP . When Someone opens it in PPT97 only the first and last slides are visible. This also happens to some users who also open it in PPT XP.
    I have saved 2 different presentations one as XP and the other as 97-2002 but the problem still exists.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Ivan Weinstein

    I can only think of a couple of possibilities - by chance have you use the new "animation schemes" that were introduced with XP? The other is the use of multiple templates which you can only do in XP. You might also try copying the entire presentation, slide by slide, to a new ppt file in case something funny has happened to the ppt file. Hopefully someone else with have better ideas. When you say others can only see the first and last slides, are they viewing it as a slide show or in the presentation design mode?

    They are trying to view it in the design mode.

    So what is showing up in place of all the other slides? Are they seeing black screens or just the intended slide backgrounds or what?
