  • ​PowerPoint file

    Good day,
    He worked with the presentation of the working draft, adding graphics, and so on.
    A couple of days ago decided to check the work of his work, but when you open the file, the application throws an error:
    "PowerPoint can not open ****. Ppt file because part of the file is missing"
    I use PowerPoint 2003 on Windows XP SP3
    How to recover a presentation?

    Restore from backup - you DO have backups, don't you?
    If not, try opening in a different (more up to date) version of PowerPoint on a different PC

    And consider moving to a slightly more recent OS and application suite - 13 years old is a bit past normal support life....

    And note to future posters on this thread - any "one post wonders" posting links / references to commercial products WILL be banned - this thread is a spam magnet.

      First you may read next sources

      To resolve the issue of opening an individual file, please follow these steps:

      1) Locate the file on your computer
      2) Right click the file and see the dropdown box which appears
      3) Look to the bottom of the dropdown box and select “Properties”
      4) In the “Properties” Window, you will see several tabs, the first of which should be “General”. Select this tab if it is not already selected.
      5) At the bottom of this window you will see “Attributes” and “Security”. Next to the word “Security” is a description stating “This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer.” and a box labeled “Unblock”.
      6) Click “Unblock” , then OK.
      7) Re-open the file by double clicking it, or opening it from PowerPoint’s “File” menu.
      Note: Once you’ve Unblocked a file, the “Security” label under the General tab will disappear. This is normal and to be expected.
