In publishing my project, I just notice a file extension I hadn't noticed before. May have been there, but don't believe I've seen it. It is a (.pptm) file that has it's type noted as a Microsoft Office PowerPoint Macro-Enabled Presentation. It has an icon that looks like a PowerPoint symbol with a yellow and black exclamation mark on it also. When the .pptm file opens, it has all the slides, etc. that are in my .ppta file, but the size is only about 5% as big as the original .ppta file. Is this just a file that has only links or macros going out and getting what it needs to run from other parts of the folder or what can you tell me about this .pptm file?
The disturbing thing is now that this file is in my folder, whenever I try to open the .ppta file, it doesn't open, but the .pptm file does. No matter what I try to do to get the .ppta file to open. Have I lost it...... or is this something new and exciting that I should be happy it has come about? Thanks.
