Hello! My prof recently gave a syllabus for our computer course. In it, she needs us to have...

"MS Word and PowerPoint (MS WORKS is NOT appropriate!!
Do NOT use MS Works.) Office Suite Version 2003 is highly
recommended, as Version 2007 documents CANNOT be opened in the labs. For those
of you working with Version 2007 at home, you will need to
re-save the file in the 2003 format before submitting!"

I do not have powerpoint at all, but is it possible to download a free version somewhere that's 2003, or is there another way I will be able to do this with another free program? thanks so much!!

What computer course are you taking? Will you have to create Power Point slide shows? Or do you just need the ability to view Power Point?
Microsoft offers a trial version of Office 2007. You may also check at the student book store to see if they offer an academic discount on Office products.

Sounds like the Prof is a (removed for your protection). Just download OpenOffice.org for free. It works with all MS Office 2003 formats.

lol, I completely agree! d to the ouche. ANYWAY! she says we'll need to be able to create the slides...so if I download the office.org one, the extentions (.ppt) will be the same, and she will be able to mark/view the presentations based on the requirementsm (i.e. 2003 version, not 2007, etc)? I just want to double check! thanks!

OpenOffice.org’s Impress file format is highly compatible with Microsoft’s PowerPoint format. You can open a PowerPoint presentation in Impress, edit it, then save it in its original PowerPoint format or in Impress format. You can also create a new presentation in Impress and save it as a PowerPoint file, for sharing your presentation with those who have yet to discover OpenOffice.org.
