> Hi all, hope this is office related since it deals with Powerpoint.
> I'm trying to put some PP slide shows on our intranet site.  I've set up
> the links page (I'm working off a LAN drive before uploading to the
> intranet) and have each one of the powerpoint presentations in the folder.
> When I click on a link, I get a dialog box that asks if you want to open
> or save, (which is what we want).  If you click on open, it opens the
> slide show in IE.  However, when you click on a the show to move to the
> next page you get the dialog box again, asking if you want to open or save
> the file.  Once you click on it a second time, the slide show works fine.
> But then, at the end of the slide show, to get back to the main page, you
> have to click the back button twice.  I'm guessing this is caused by
> having to open the slide show a second time to move to the next slides.  
> The slide show is current saved as a ppt file.  I tried saving as a pps
> slide show, but then you don't get the option to view, only to save.  I
> saved as a pdf and I published it as a web page (html file) from within
> powerpoint.  The html option doesn't show the slide show properly, some
> information is missing.  The pdf is okay, but it's not really what they
> want.  They want managers to be able download the ppt file and use the
> slides in their own presentations to staff, but they also want the option
> to view from the website directly.  I have 16 different presentations that
> have to be put up on the intranet on monday.
> Anyone have any idea what might be wrong?  Is it because I'm on the LAN
> drive rather than the intranet?  Any help would be appreciated.
> Thanks,
> Christine
