In response to the question "Is there any way to open it without buying office?" The sender of the Power Point slide show needs to use the "pack and go" on (I believe) the File menu. This will enable the receiver to view the slide show even without PP installed.
This question was answered on October 24, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.If you have Power point file and you want to ONLY view, or OPEN, then download Powerpoint Viewer from microsoft website free Notice this will only view the content, But will not let you modified it This will work for PowerPoint Viewer 97 for PowerPoint 97, 2000, and 2002 Users.
