When I open power point 2003 and click OPEN, all my folders are showing up 
in reverse order. (z -----a)...I prefer them (a-----z).  This is happening 
only in PPT 2003. This started earlier this evening.  I know it has to be 
something simple but I haven't figured it out yet.  HELP PLEASE.

In the open file dialog, click the little arrow next to the view button, 
choose details, that should give you a set of columns which you can use to 
sort the list, just click on the column header, in your case that would be 
the name column. See if it helps.

2.Running Windows PowerPoint Show Files with a Mac

I will try this again as I failed previously to describe my problem. I
do safety training for an organization on contract. The training is
done with overheads or Windows generated PowerPoint Show files. The
PPS files are password protected to keep others from modifying the

These PPS files run fine with windows. I could not run the
presentation with PowerPoint from Office 2004 on the mac as it says I
needed a later version of PowerPoint so I used overheads or a borrowed
Windows laptop.

Now armed with Office  PowerPoint 2008 I felt my problems were solved.
However to my surprise the  PowerPoint  Show will not run I get the
message. "This presentation is protected by a password or Digital
Rights Management (DRM) To access the presentation, you must have a
version that is not protected by a password or DRM."

Why won't the PowerPoint Show run on a mac? And if not what good is
PowerPoint  2008?

Is there any way to convert the show version back to an editable ppt file?

5.Powerpoint 2000 shows file name of video, only?

  When I try and insert an mpg file into a slide, it tells me there's an
