Hi, I have created a powerpoint presentation document which i want to send out as an email, so that the pages just open without needing a click..
i have got it sorted perfectly on powerpoint, and went to file, send as an attachment. But when i open it, it opens up the powerpoint programme to view it, which i dont want it to do, I just want to see it all open up on screen.
Can I do this? thank you!

have you tried saving it as a slide show, so it's a name.pps file, rather than a name.ppt file?

And is that what you want? If so, I think it's under "save as" in the file menu

Or do you want it to be one of those self-extracting email attachments?

Yeh I think that's what you need.
On the File menu, click Save As.
In the Save as type box, select PowerPoint show (.pps).
In the File name box, enter a file name, and then click Save.

Hi, when you save your presentation in Powerpoint, choose Powerpoint Show from the Save As Type dropdown list on the Save As dialogue box. This should do it for you
