PPT2000: Changes to Presentation are not Tracked When Collaborating in HTML Format

ID: Q226629

The information in this article applies to:


When you have more than one person editing the same Web Presentation, from the same Web Folder or file server, the user that saves the Web Presentation last will over-write any changes that were made by all other users that are editing the same Web Presentation.

PowerPoint does not indicate that a Web Presentation is being edited by another person. In effect, multiple people are allowed to edit the same presentation at the same time, when the file is in the HTML format.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft PowerPoint 2000.
