Dear Techwhirlers,

I would be grateful for any help any of you could give me.

Until a couple of weeks ago, I was using Powerpoint 2000 to create slides
for a training course. I now have a new machine running xp.

Powerpoint xp has proved disastrous!!!

My graphics were all bmps inserted through Insert Picture. They were all
linked graphics.

Now when I open a file I get the usual message, "Do you want to update
links?" If I click yes, I get a message that some files cannot be updated
and are unavailable etc...

When I try to reestablish the links, I get a message that the graphic was
unavailable and cannot be updated.

Have any of you experienced this problem? Is there a workaround?

I cannot even Change source. The graphics are all there and in the right

At the moment, the only solution seems to be a return to Powerpoint 2000...

Many thanks in advance,

Tybi Kapiloff
