Can we display power point slides through  coldfusion?

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

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)?
