I have to do a presentation using PowerPoint. I have a MacBook running the Mac versions of Microsoft Office software. However, the laptop I have to use for my presentation will be running Windows. Will my MacBook-created PowerPoint presentation run OK on a Windows laptop, using a CD? TIA.

I think you should be fine. However when you save you should go to File -> Save As, and then under Format you should change it to Power Point 97-2004 Shows (.pps).

I guess this would consider it a legacy file, and there shouldn't be any problems with opening this version.

Test it first. As long as the presentation attributes are imbedded in the PPT file, it should be OK. Office file formats are basically the same in both the Mac and Windows versions of MS Office.
