for powerpoint 2003 - you do this -
insert
object
click on the radio button - create from file
now you can embed the file as part of the powerpoint - or - by clicking on the link button, keep the file outside of powerpoint , but remember if you email - you need to include the files , by linking any updates to the external file can take place
There a button on right hand side to - display as icon - click on that to choose the icon to be displayed to click on during
You can then change the Icon and change the name
click on OK
Noe the ICON appears on the powerpoint sheet - you can change size and move like any object on powerpoint
To enable it to run when you click on it in SlideShow mode - you now need to right click on the icon, action setting - you have choice now of what to do when mouse click or mouse over
on mouse click tab - object action - dropdown, open

That should be it - run the slideshow, and when the mouse goes over the icon, you should get a hand over and when click should open the file, when you close the file you go back to the powerpoint presentation slide.

Powerpoint 2007 is the same in principle - but of course the method is different, due to menu changes, I have done it but don't have 2007 available to get exact steps - heres a link on how to do that in 2007 https://www.uwec.edu/help/PPoint07/linking.htm

I have also moved the post to the Business applications forum
