Troubleshooting 2007 errors
Logic: a new feature when your program throws an error
This is a brilliant new feature in
PowerPoint 2007. (Actually, it is supported in previous
version but is native in 2007).
When you are working in 2007, you get some
sort of error occur.
You can click the Show Help button for
more information. Brilliant.
But there's more! With the Dialog Box
open, hit the keyboard shortcut of <Control + Shift + I>.
Suddenly a number pops up in the corner
called an AlertID.
Go to this page and type the number in:
You (may) get an article specific to that error.
Open the link and you find out you were trying to open a
file type PowerPoint 2007 cannot handle. Now, the articles
are not always spot on, but sometimes they give you specify
a work-around! That is COOL!
