Hi

I have recently noticed that some pps extension files are not running automatically. Can anyone help is suggesting a possible reason as to why not and a possible fix. I use MS OFFICE 2003

Hopefully the fix if there is one won't be too complicated. (NOVICE)

Hi dsenette

In response to your question, what I am experiencing is as follows:

Some files of my pps extension files usually advance forward by themselves when being played back and in others I have to advance to the next clip manually.

As previously indicated I am under the impression than files with pps extension do advance by themselves and was wondering if there might a cause why others have to be advanced manually. Might there be a fault at my end or at the originator's end.

Tks

AHA! that depends on how the PPS was set up...you can set up a PPS (powerpoint show) and not have it automatically advance through the slides...so it depends on how the PPS was created

Hi

Thanks for your explanation. Fully understand that it depends on how originated in the first instance.
