Note: For Office 2007 or later, the default file format is .pptx. This means that any computers running Office 2007 or 2008 will be able to access such files, but if someone tries to access such a file from Office 2003 or 2004, it will not work. To ensure backwards compatibility, simply select the .ppt format when saving the document to ensure that Office 2003 or 2004 users can open the document.
