The Microsoft Office suite is generally regarded as the standard when it comes to productivity software packages, both for personal and business use. Unfortunately, this program can be costly and many infrequent users have difficulty justifying the expense. Open Office provides almost all of the features that Microsoft Office does, and it is free. Additionally, any Open Office document can be saved in a format that is understandable by corresponding Microsoft applications, such as Powerpoint.
Things You'll Need
- ODF Presentation (.odp) file
- Open Office Impress application
Open your .odp file by double-clicking on it.
Click on "File" in the top left-hand corner.
Scroll to "Save As" and select it.
Click on "Save as Type" when the "Save As" window opens.
Scroll to the "Microsoft Powerpoint 1997/2000/XP (.ppt) (*.ppt)" option and click on it.
Change the file name and file location, if necessary, and click on the "Save" button.
