Is there any way to open an existing PowerPoint file that now errors?

it depends what your error is. I do know of one common one that

gives people headaches very often and involves fonts. If it is

something like "Cannot open due to read-only embedded fonts", then

you are probably out of luck. In fact, some people who make

profesional presentations use this trick so you can't edit the

presentation, only open it. I have this problem myself. If that

isn't what you were asking about, could you be a bit more specific

and I'll try and see what I can do. Thanks!! Graham MasterMinds
