Not sure if Trados 7 is compatible with Office 2003 Feb 24, 2011

Are you sure Trados 7 does support PowerPoint 2003? I am not certain...
Or maybe you even try to open PowerPoint 2007 (pptx)?

Already solved! Feb 24, 2011

Ok. Thanks Jerzy for your reply. Yes, they are compatible. Trados 7.0 admits office 2003. Most fortunately I could solve this issue. In simple terms, first I opened the file with Wordpad and searched for the string "PowerPoint Filter 2.0.0.0", changed it to "PowerPoint Filter 1.0.0.0" and then saved changes. I opened the file with TagEditor then and worked on it as usual. Before submitting my file to client, I opened it again with Wordpad and chaged the string "PowerPoint Filter 1.0.0.0" back to...

Hope it works for others with the same problem I had.

Thanks anyway!

Really helpful but... Nov 29, 2011

Lourdes,
On the one hand, your advice helped me a lot with one file!
On the other, I still can´t solve the problem with other file. I opened it with Wordpad but I couldn´t find a string saying "filter 2.0.0.0." so I couldn´t change it. Do you (or anybody) have any idea of what I could do?
Many thanks!!!

Check final period Nov 29, 2011

Hi, Verónica. I don't know if this is your mistake but I think that you have typed your search entry wrong. It is not "2.0.0.0." but "2.0.0.0", that is, without the final period. Hope this works for you! Best regards!!! Lourdes.

typo mistake Nov 30, 2011

Hi Lourdes!

Sorry! That was a typo, but just here, not in the file. The solution you gave totally worked for me.

However, there´s another file which doesn´t say anything about that ("filter...") when I opened it with Wordpad. So, even though those messages appeared, I continued working on it in Tag Editor.
Hopefully, I won´t have problems when doing the cleanup....

Thanks!
