I am having problems when trying to 'Save Target as' from TagEditor into a .pptx file. The error I am getting is:

Exception of type 'Office12.PowerPointPlugInFilter.SDLTRADOSException.CPPTDataContainerException' was thrown

I worked from a tag editor file I received. I edited it and tried to save target as pptx (original file format) to no avail. I tried using Trados 2007, 2009 and 2011...nothing works. I tried running te source pptx file I received but it is not identical to the English on the tag editor file. The original/source pptx is longer so if I re-translate it using my updated TM there are many slides and portions of slides in English (impossible to clean).

In the folder I have the old tag editor files, the new edited tag editor files, the source ppptx files (that do not match unfortunately) and the TM.

I need to be able to Save As Target...what can I do? Thanks for your help!
