I want a powerpoint presentation to open in slideshow mode on file opening.  I have tried 'pack and go' but don't like the solution.  I want the presentation to always open in slideshow view not just the first time.  

I figure I need a VBA solution.  I am a light VBA user (monkey see monkey do) but can not get my code right.  PP'97 SR2

If you need more deail, please let me know.

meremark,

Try the following:

Open your presentation in PPoint.  Perform a File/Save As, and in the Save As Type [bottom input box] select SlideShow.

This will create a carbon copy of your presentation - it will have a .pps file extension, and will always open as a show not a presentation.
