Question by Victoria: Can I put a powerpoint from my office 2007 version onto a powerpoint 2003 version?
I was wondering about this, because my college professor says she has Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 version and later versions might not be able to read the file. I only have Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007. So, will a PowerPoint 2007 version work on a PowerPoint 2003 program?

If you save it as a compatible format (.ppt), yes. By default, PowerPoint saves files with the .pptx extension, so be sure to change that when saving your presentation.
The other alternative is to get your professor to download a MS Office add-on that lets her read newer Office extensions, but I think the former is easier.
Also, do take note that if you use any of the new features of PowerPoint (such as animation that 2003 doesn’t have), it will not appear in the 2003 version.
