Opening OpenDocument Presentation Files

Issue/Question

Why can't I open .odp files?

Environment

  • Apache OpenOffice
  • Microsoft Office (PowerPoint)

Cause

Users receive an error message or problems viewing presentations because PowerPoint is unable to read the file.

Resolution

Ask the sender to submit a .ppt file instead of an .odp file. Instruct the sender to open the presentation in OpenOffice and save as Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP for the file type.
