Save your Office PowerPoint 2007 presentation in PowerPoint 97-2003 format

Posted on April 14, 2009. Filed under: Powerpoint Tips |

To ensure that you can open your Office PowerPoint 2007 presentation (.pptx) in an earlier version of PowerPoint, you can save a copy of it that is compatible with PowerPoint 97-2003.

Important To prevent SmartArt graphics and objects in your presentation from being converted to bitmap pictures, save a copy of your Office PowerPoint 2007 presentation, and then save the copy as a PowerPoint 97-2003 file. PowerPoint 97-2003 does not recognize the new SmartArt graphics and visual objects that are available in Office PowerPoint 2007, and will convert them to bitmaps to maintain their appearance. You cannot change certain aspects of bitmaps, such as line width, fill color, and other Office PowerPoint 2007 specific properties.

In Office PowerPoint 2007, open the presentation that you want to save as a PowerPoint 97-2003 file.

Click the Button image button, point to the arrow next to Save As, and then click PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation.The Save As dialog box appears.

In the File name box, enter a name for your presentation, or do nothing to accept the suggested file name.

In the Save in list, select the location that you want to save your presentation to, or do nothing to accept the suggested location.

Click Save.The file is saved as a PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation (.ppt) file that you can open in PowerPoint 97 through 2003.
