    I'm running a G5 PowerMac, System 10.3.7, using Office 2004.

    After receiving a PC Powerpoint file and opening it, I cannot edit and save the document. I get the following error message:

    There was an error accessing ComputerName/Users:username:Desktop:filename.ppt.

    Sometimes, I also get the following, secondary message.

    This is a Read-Only file. Do You Want to Save it Under a Different Name?

    I have saved it with a different name, and the same thing keeps happening. I've tossed Preference files, reinstalled Office 2004, made sure I had all application upgrades, and nothing seems to help.

    Any ideas?
