I am batching and receiving a  text converter error. I can open if I change ext to pptx, but I am allowed change the native file-name or extension in this particular case.

Not sure I understand 2007 will open ppt files directly unless they are in 95 format. You cannot easily change the extensions because 2007 runs a security check that the extension matches the fle type.
