Sharepoint won't save a single powerpoint slide in PPTM format.  It seems to see it as a presentation rather than a single slide.  Any ideas how I can use the document management feaures of sharepoint to maintain a library of macro enabled poweerpoint slides?

you should add PPTM as a save extension file from the central admin

PPTM is not in the blocked file extension list in Central Administration/Operations.  Is there another area that I need to be aware of?

"MINE Types" file extensions under IIS

But i would have thought it will be there by default. This bit tells the client browser what is coming down, and if the browser has a set open method for the file. Removing this will cause the browser to download it instead of opening it.
