Compatible probably means that "Impress" files can be Saved As PowerPoint (*.ppt). If you're rilly lucky, it'll Save As specific versions. Out of curiosity I'm dowloading OpenOffice myself to check.

You could always check yourself with a freebie viewer -

Finally (in context of the rule of thumb that "we can't do your homework"), if there are any gaps in cross-functionality, I have PP97 & 2000 so could top'n'tail for you.

Rgds,
Andy

Hi Anne. I'd be surprised if you didn't. But ;

(a) aren't those crap? <vbg>

(b) look at ALL THOSE POSTS. I'm worried you're working too hard.

Installed OpenOffice, "Impress" seems OK.

You can save as PowerPoint 97/2K/XP. Sometimes it prompts something about loss of features/formats. But nothing is apparently screwed on re-opening in PowerPoint. In fact, text animation effects look klunky when applied in Impress, but look as intended when opened in PP (?!?).

Armed with Impress (plus PP Viewer to check your output), you should get on OK. But if you get stuck, just pop back to TSG. ;)

Rgds,
Andy
