Ok, so I know that this is not the place to ask this type of question, but there isn't really any other place to ask and I thought that the people here might know. Can I change a powerpoint project from a NEW version to an OLD version? I know how to change it from old to new, but I don't even know If what I want is possible. Any answers are appreciated!


iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    So, should I assume that there is no way to do this?

    You only allow 26 minutes for someone to appear and answer questions about non-Apple applications?

     

    Try the Microsoft Powerpoint forum:

    I knew someone would say that... The forum was not helpful. If people here are grumpy after sitting in front of their computer for hours trying to answer questions so that they can get points, they are not obliged to answer. I was tight on time, does it affect you if I leave some time to get an answer? No. I am not going to seek further help on this topic because you don't seem to be very happy to work with a "non Apple program" that Apple uses.

    Fascinating attitude from someone who can't even be bothered to state what Mac they have, what operating system, what version of Office they are running, and what version of Powerpoint they are changing to.

     

    Yes, some of us spend hours here trying to help fellow users out of the goodness of our heart - and no other reward, but we are not clairvoyant.

    That word was ill used. I said that I knew someone would say something like "You only allow 26 minutes!" Also, if you would take the time to look at mty first post you can see the Mac I have and what operating system. It does not matter about the versions of office. All I wanted to know was if the new could be turned to old, that is information enough. Also, not many people truly do do it out of the goodness of their hearts (no offense to them).

    Yes it does, and no it isn't.

     

    Best of luck on the Microsoft forum for Microsoft products. Don't forget to omit all relevant details from your question, that speeds things up a lot.

    Well then, since it does why don't you give me a better answer now. I want to convert a Microsoft powerpoint from version 2009 to 2003.

  • 8. Re: Converting versions

    I say it doesn't matter because if there were a program that was made specifically to do this type of conversion, there would most likely be the option of going from any version to any version.

    It'd be best to post in a Microsoft forum; you are posting on an Apple forum for iMacs - not everyone who has an iMac also runs MS software, so posting in a forum where they actually use the product seems to be an excellent suggestion. I can't help because I do not run anything MS.

     

    There are also forums here that deal with MS stuff - you can find them here:

     

    https://discussions.apple.com/community/windows_software

     

    And, FWIW, we are all volunteers here - users trying to help other users. Being anything but polite does not help.

    I have never heard of versions 2003 or 2009 of Office for the Mac.

     

    These forums cover Apple hardware and software. I suggest again that you ask Microsoft.

    Yes, babowa is correct. I will seek help elsewhere. Iam sorry for being impolite.

    There's a 2003 version # for Windows. There has never been a 2009 version # for Win or Mac.

    No probllem; let us know when you have it sorted and/or have a non-MS related question!
