Hi Folks,
I have a user using Office 2007 all updated. When going into the custom margins window of a table and adjusting the margin sizes there, she receives an error when hitting Save on the file: "Powerpoing found an error that it can't correct. You should save presentations, quit, and then restart Powerpoint." Hitting Save As... yields the same result when trying it as a workaround. Has anyone ever seen this behavior before? Thanks!

I'd guess she needs an updated printer driver. PPT 2007 is notoriously picky about those.

Well she recreated the tables in the file and it seemed to fix the issue. Can tables become corrupt specifically in this way? That is my guess since that fixed the problem?

Yes, it's possible she has corrupt content in the presentation -- in this case, it's the tables. It's hard to tell what content is corrupt or what causes the corruption, though. Glad to hear that recreating the tables helped in this case.

It cannot be a certain cause/solution so that is why I am giving partials, not the fault of the expert at all.
