    If a PPT file goes corrupt! (PPT 2002)

    Hi all,

    There are a few ways a person can save an Excel spreadsheet if the file goes corrupt. I had the case of a customer who's PPT file (23 slides, without any Audio/Video, linked files or graphics, maybe a couple of clipart) went corrupt. Everytime the customer opened this specific file, it froze up and became unresponsive after a few seconds. Any other PPT file did not do this, so it wasn't PPT as an application that was going bad!

    My question:
    Is there any known way of saving the file. Any method to save the info and generate a new presentation from it.
    What I tried already:
    1. Saving the file with a new name...new file just hangs too!
    2. Deleting the graphics....no change!
    3. Opening a new PPT session and selecting slides from file, and importing the slides....it imported, but the entire pres. lost its structure and formatting....may as well begin from scratch!

    Any other methods that I am unaware of....?
    Tx
    Regards,
    Rudi
