Linking two PowerPoint 2007 presentations together

Hi,

I want to link a rolling presentation from my company together with one from another partner company so they provide a continuous, looping presentation at an exhibition.  


PRESENTATION 1, PRESENTATION 2, PRESENTATION 1, PRESENTATION 2, PRESENTATION 1 etc.

I do not want to merge them together as they use different templates/themes.

Can this be done either using .pps or .ppt format files?  

Any simple suggestions would be best!!  :-)

Thanks, Graham

This might help you out:
http://www.pptalchemy.co.uk/powerpoint_combine.html   - not sure how the themes will work as i haven't tried this.

You can combine files that use different themes/templates. That would be the easiest way to do what you want. Otherwise you'd have to create a playlist, but I don't know of a way to loop the files.

You might be able to use Windows Task Scheduler to do something like this, though.

See: http://www.awesomebackgrounds.com/powerpointlooping.htm
Although since PPT 2003 gives you the fade slide transition, you no longer need the common slide that Taj describes.
Basically, make a new presentation with a single black slide, set the slide transition of the first slide of each of your presentations to Fade through black and then embed each of the presentations in the black slide. (Insert, Object, Create from file) Then use custom animations to play each presentation in the order that you want.  Set the main presentation with the black slide to Loop until Esc.

Unfortunately we haven't been able to loop a playlist since the PPT97 viewer.

Ah, duh -- I completely forgot about TAJ's technique. Thanks, Glenna!
