I am trying to help somebody but I don't know much about Powerpoint, so I am hoping that the good people here might be able to. So here is the situation.

This is a mobile home park were they continuosly transmit a PP presentation of classifieds/events/etc thru their cable system already setup.
They have a second computer so that they can show a single slide of "WORK IN PROGRESS" while they edit/add to the contents of the main PP presentation on the first computer, all is done thru an A/B switch.
When done with the editing they switch back to the main presentation & the cycle repeats everyday.

I believe that it can all be done with 1 PC but don't know how to. I know how to open two instances of PP on a PC but don't know how to proceed to show the single file (Work in Progress) and work on the main file. I have been able to almost do it on my dual monitor setup by telling PP to run the single file in one monitor and show the presentation on the other to be able to edit. But as soon as I click on the one that I want to edit the other stops.

Can you guys share some insight into this???
