Subject Re: The OpenOffice team (Re: Need help, I can't open a presentation on my computer ....)
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2012 11:10:00 GMT
This originated from a college student requesting help with some PPT 
files she could not open. I offered to help her. The problem turned out 
to be that her data files were heavily corrupted, AOO was/is working 
properly insofar as her particular problem is concerned.
