I have a .ppt document that I am trying to open up in Powerpoint 2003.  When I open the file Powerpoint opens up but this error message pops up: "Powerpoint can't create the storage required for an inserted or linked object."  If you click OK the .ppt document does not open but Powerpoint loads with a gray background.  Any help would be great.  I looked up the error on EE and I googled it and cannot find a single entry about it.

If your file became corrupted when PowerPoint or your computer crashed, there may be a temporary version of the file in your TEMP directory. If so, you can try the aforementioned Insert, Slides From File and browse to that file. Or you can try changing the file's extension to PPT and see if you can open it from within PowerPoint using File, Open. You could also do a search for *.TMP files on the off chance that it's not in your TEMP directory.
 
If the presentation seems corrupted or on the verge of it, but you can still open it, download and use the CloneMe add-in from Microsoft (for PowerPoint 97 or 2000) or for PowerPoint 2000 and higher, try HTML "Round-tripping" to repair corruption
 
Many users have recovered damaged PPT presentations by opening them in Impress, the presentation program included with Sun's Star Office presentation package or the free Open Office.
In case you can't overcome your issue make use of https://www.repairtoolbox.com/powerpointrepair.html PowerPoint Repair Toolbox
