    I'm creating a powerpoint preso with both landscape and portrait oriented slides. Powerpoint Help states that you do this. I followed Microsoft's help and linked both presentations according to following directions:

    Link FIRST one to SECOND one. (landscape to portrait)

    1. Create a link from the first presentation to the second presentation:
    2. In the first presentation, select the text or object that you want to click to link to the second presentation.
    3. On the Slide Show menu, click Action Settings.
    4. Click Hyperlink to, click the arrow to open the list, and then click Other PowerPoint Presentation.
    5. Browse to and select the second presentation, and then click OK.
    6. In the Slide title list, select the slide title that you want to link to in the second presentation, and then click OK.

    Link SECOND one to FIRST one (Portrait to Landscape)

    1. Create a link from the second presentation back to the first presentation :
    2. In the second presentation, select the text or object that you want to click to return to the first presentation.
    3. On the Slide Show menu, click Action Settings.
    4. Click Hyperlink to, click the arrow to open the list, and then click Other PowerPoint Presentation.
    5. Browse to and select the first presentation, and then click OK.
    6. In the Slide title list, select the slide title that you want to link to in the first presentation, and then click OK.

    NOTE When you present this slide show, you must have both presentation files in the same folder on the computer that you use to give the presentation.

    So corresponding slides are linked BOTH ways, and are in SAME folder. When I run my show (FIRST ppt) it doesn't link?

    Help!!!! What am I doing wrong???
