Can we display power point slides through coldfusion?

Hi,

I have problem when I try to open a .ppt file through cold fusion script.

Here is sample code.

<td bgcolor=#DDDDDD background=/images/side_navbg1.gif>
   <font face=verdana,arial,helvetica size=1 color=#FFFFFF>
    <b><img align=left src=/images/pixel.gif width=18 height=11 border=0>
    <a class="sidebar" href="Controlling/Controlling_file.ppt" target="content">Organization_Chart


Actually I tried with some .gif file in the same location (Controlling/some_file.gif). It works file. But .ppt file is did not work.

Can you some one tell me how do I bring power point file on my webpage?

I tried with other way... that I saved the power point as .gif file. When I save it, each slides saved in separerate file. Can you someone advice me how to save the .ppt (assume .ppt has 3 slides) all slides into one .gif file?

Thanks in advance
C.M

HI,

I tried with taget="_blank".  Workes fine. But ppt slide is appear on another windiw. But I need show the ppt files on same page (i.e, taget = "contents").

On the main window, I have option menu on left side. If we choose any one of the option, the related page is showed on right side(i.e. taget="content"). How do i bring the ppt file on the right side(on same window)?

Thanks

Hi there,

Give the target as

TARGET="_self"

remember - that when u specify target window name - its case sensitive ... so make sure u keep the case intact - else it will always pop up a new window.

let me know incase u need ne-help.

so u may grade the answere & increase the points to whatever amt u may so desire.

& then click on submit.

the screens that follow r actually self explanatory ...

so dont worry .. u'll navigate urself.
