Converting PowerPoint PPT files to PPTX version 2010
Posted on 2011-04-19
Hello - we have a network of Office 2000/2003 users who are steadily being converted to 2010. We notice that with Word and Excel 2010, you can use the FILE/CONVERT function to automatically convert the older files to the new format and it automatically replaces the old file with the new one, so there is not 2 copies in 2 formats left from the process. PowerPoint does not seem to do this - it only opens a SAVEAS screen and creates a second file for the new format, leaving the older copy on the network. Does anyone know why, or if there's a way to control that so it behaves like Word and Excel when converting files?
