Ok. thanks for posting it in the foram and not PMing me.

Here is waht I would try.

Open PowerPoint and Word, then Press the enter key in Word so you have as many pages as you need (two slides can fit on a page). Then go to PowerPoint and have one slide on the screen and go edit and press slect all (Ctrl+A) and then press the copy button (Ctrl+C) and then go to Word and press paste (Ctrl+P) This will take a long time to do but is the only way I know of that will preserve all format. Why do you need to convet it? I beleve you can save anything in Office 2003 as a PDF if this helps. will try to find something that converts it in google.

Nope, Im sorry that doesn't work! I assume I must do it the long way, by copying one by one! Unless there's another way!

Well, You see this document is my dad's daily class work (he's doing a course) and his teacher sent him this document in Powerpoint, but he wants it in MS Word because he wants to print it!I know you can print using PowerPoint, but it takes double the pages; for eg: the document is 33 pages, so it will take 66 pages on Powerpoint!

I will try and find one, but I though it was built into Office 2003. Just see if there is the option of saving it as one.
