PPS cannot run on Office 2003

Postby EzyB via OfficeKB.com » Sat, 18 Dec 2004 15:21:42 GMT

I could run a pps on my computer with office 2000 but the same pps cannot be run on another computer with office 2003. Re-installation also fails. I have also checked the PPS file type setting on both computers (i.e. "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\POWERPNT.EXE" /s "%1" for office 2000) and both have correct settings accordingly, which means ..\office\.. for Powerpoint 2000 anf ..\office11\.. for Powerpoint 2003.

Any idea where I miss?

1.Office 2003 macro won't run in Office 2007

I did post this on the Excel Programming site, but not really a lot of 
insight came back, so I'm hoping a Powerpoint expert can help!

I created a macro in Office 2003 using early binding to copy data from Excel 
into Powerpoint...not the greatest code...but it worked!  Now my users are 
switching to Office 2007 and the code won't run!  I have include what I 
believe to be the relevant string of code below.

Dim objPPT As Object
Set objPPT = CreateObject("PowerPoint.Application")
objPPT.Visible = True

Dim PPApp As PowerPoint.Application
Dim PPPres As PowerPoint.Presentation
Dim PPSlide As PowerPoint.Slide

Set PPApp = GetObject(, "Powerpoint.Application")
PPApp.ActivePresentation.Slides.range(Array(13)).Select

    ' Reference active presentation
Set PPPres = PPApp.ActivePresentation
PPApp.ActiveWindow.ViewType = ppViewSlide
    ' Reference active slide
Set PPSlide = 
PPPres.Slides(PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange.SlideIndex)
     
    'EXCEL CODE
Sheets("TablesforPP").Select
range("a2").Select
Selection.Copy
       
    'POWERPOINT CODE
PPSlide.Shapes.Paste.Select

This is where it errors with the following message:

"Run-time error '-2147188160(80048240)':
Shapes (unknown member): Invalid request.  Clipboard is empty or contains 
data which may not be pasted here"

The data is captured by the Excel and is in the clipboard ready to paste, 
and I can manually paste.  By looking at how the data appears when I manually 
paste I think maybe I need to "paste special" as RTF, but I'm not sure of the 
coding for that.  I'm not a developer, and had enough trouble getting this 
all set up in 2003, now having to "convert" to 2007 is extremely frustrating!

I don't need this coding to be compatible with both Office 2003 and 2007, I 
just need it to work in Office 2007.  I'm sure I will run into more issues as 
I cycle through the code, but if I can understand why this is happening and 
fix it, I think I'll be a long way to understanding any subsequent issues.

Thanks,
Nicki

5.Cannot Open Powerpoint file in Office 2003

I upgraded to Office 2003.  Opened a powerpoint 
presentation created in Office 2000.  Modified
it.  Saved it.  I cannot open it now.  Error is 
"Powerpoint can't read [file path/name]".

The file was on a network drive so I had someone
try to open it in Office 2000 and had no problem.

Is this a known bug?  How do I fix this?

Tim.
