    I would like to know the best way to prepare PP's that will run automatically (including the video clips!), and could be sent via email.

    Thanks for any advice!

    Oh come on! Not one person can guide me on this? I'm thinking maybe this isn't the best place to get PP help, as another simple I asked about got hundreds of views and zero responses. Can anyone suggest a good forum for PP help?

    I would think that ppt files that contains video would be to large to be email around.

    As for the formatting what do you want to know?

    Hi, and thank you. No videos at all. Just a simple PP. I just want one that I can send to people via email....I understand file size is important. This would be 1mb max. What is the best way to set it up so that it just plays automatically? I have individually set all text and images on the slides to "after previous" and set the timings just how I want them.

    I realize this is really basic but it would help a lot to know how to make it work right and avoid silly errors.

    Thanks again!

    You must first set up the timing with the file to advance to the next slide. This must be done for ALL slides, but you can set a time setting and apply to all slides. Then the file can be saved as a "pps" type of file and this can be then sent on to others.

    Do a Google on "Making a PPS file" and you will find more information.
