FILE FORMATS• The new file format for PowerPoint 2007 is based on XML, so the extension has an x in the end: a 2007 PowerPoint file has a .pptx extension.• There is a separate file format for files with macros: a 2007 macro-enabled PowerPoint file has a .pptm extension.• You can save files to the old format. A compatibility checker should warn you if features of your document will be affected.• Those using Office 2000 to 2003 can download a converter enabling them to open 2007 files.
