    Hi,
    I had a folder of PowerPoint 2003 files that I used frequently. Last week I went to open them and they wouldn't open. If I open PowerPoint 2007 first, then I can access the 2003 files but I can't open them directly from my folder. Any idea on what might have caused this so suddenly? What can I do to get those files back? Thanks.

    When you try this, do you get any error messages?
    If not what happens?

    No error messages. I can open the older PPT file only when PPT 2007 is open first. I can't open the file directly from my presentation folder. Thanks.
