Forum Thread: An Unknown Problem Prevents Me from Completing the Project

During my work on an important presentation, I encountered difficulties with opening a file with a database. PowerPoint 15.0, installed on a PC, gives an error message - PowerPoint can not open the type of file represented by ppt. I do not know what to do about it. Is it possible to open it somehow?

The steps, which a recover PowerPoint online for this solution, are shown below:

  1. Open MS PowerPoint program. Click on Office button (on top of the left side).
  2. A window will be appearing. Now select corrupt PowerPoint file from the system directory.
  3. Click on the arrow of Open button. A list will be scrolled down.
  4. From the list, click on Open and Repair. After some seconds, the file will be repaired and opened.

Note: Though this solution efficiently works with corrupt files, but if it does not work we must try the following solutions.

  1. We should try to open a corrupt file in Impress.
  2. We should try to open a corrupt file in MS Word. If it gets opened, we can recover at least the text part of the presentation file.
  3. We should try to import the slides from the damaged file into a new file.
