When I try to open it in either Powerpoint Viewer or openoffice it says it's not a powerpoint file. I even tried viewing it in gmail and it says it's not a ms office document. I have viewed this file with no problems on another computer with MS office 2007. What's the deal?

Was it made with office 2007? That may be the problem. You are trying to view it with an older version of office. Maybe try opening it in office 2007 and saving it as an older version.

I assume it was made with 07. I've tried opening it with Powerpoint Viewer 97, 03, and 07 and none worked.

I have viewed this file with no problems on another computer with MS office 2007. What's the deal? Do you still have access to the other computer? Try saving as a 97 or whatever file on that one & try again. Perhaps the file got corrupted between machines? :shrug:

So I ended up uh...buying...yeah.... Office Ultimate 2007 and it opens it fine. Crappy Powerpoint Viewer can kiss my hairy ass.
