I am running win xp sp3. I have office 2000. Last semester I used my power point 2000 with ppts done by teachers at school.
This semester my teacher sent me a pptx file, and said it could be opened by power point 97 on.

I get an error message saying that ppt can not open this file. It does not seem to recognise the file. I don't believe they're corrupted as I have opened them on another computer.

I tried renaming them to .txt and rtx and also to plain .ppt to no avail.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Sharon
