wrong approach as the powepoint may be in several linked locations.  checkout the file open it i powerpoint, then edit and save the file, check in the document.. use powerpoint and not the sharepoint web designer for this.

what? The pp presentation was already on the webpage that we created years ago. It was already on the SPD which was up loaded onto our company web page. All I did was update the pp presentation, saved it to my desktop then tried to import it to SPD to upload it the new version onto the web page. And everytime I go to view it the pp presentation on the live web page it opens up  in the edit mode.
I used powerpoint to update the presentation. I saved it to my desktop. I tried to import it SPD to upload it to the web page were it was originally and when I go to open the live page on the website, it opens up in edit mode and it shouldn't. It should open up as a slide show for the public to view.

Did I save it with the wrong ext or what?
Am I importing it wrong or what?

I'm not sure I can help you because I don't really know anything about Sharepoint Designer.

That said, you can embed a presentation into a web page using the embed code that you generate. Here are instructions to generate embed code from within the webapp (so this assumes you've uploaded your presentation to a public online folder of some sort) : http://blogs.office.com/2013/01/10/embedding-presentations-into-your-website-with-the-powerpoint-web-app/

Unfortunately the embedded presentation doesn't actually play on that instruction page, but I think that's an issue with the Microsoft servers more than the process/embed code itself. (I wish they'd fix that -- it's so stupidly embarrassing.)

This set of instructions explains how to do it from the desktop version of PPT. Basically it's the same, but it actually tells you to upload the file to a public online folder. http://www.microsoft.com/web/solutions/powerpoint-embed.aspx

To upload presentations made in PP2010 you should save them with "Save & Send/Save to Sharepoint". In PP2013, "Save As/Sharepoint".

As you're using Sharepoint 2007, to upload presentations made with PP 2007 version or prior, you must save them as "Single File Web Page (*.mht; *.mhtl)".
