  • Hi Dave, 

    I'll see if I can find the problem but from the background story on the document, it's possible that this might be considered a corrupt document. If there's anything else you can shared about how it was created and what areas of the format might be in question, please share. 

    Best regards,

  • Hi Tom;

    The template they used is here. One interesting thing I noticed, dropbox will display the contents of the "bad" file. So it is able to render it. Which leads me to believe it's some property PowerPoint doesn't like, not major corruption.

    thanks - dave

  • We figured this out - references (rId) that had no matching entry.

  • Thanks for letting me know Dave. I had found a lot of miscellaneous issues with XML bits that PowerPoint didn't like but going through them was taking some time. Glad you figured it out.
