I have two separate existing Powerpoint presentations. I'm trying to copy & paste one slide into the other ppt presentation. I want to keep the original formatting however. When I copy & paste now, the slide takes the formatting of the slideshow that I'm pasting it into. How can I keep the original formatting???

In PP 2000 you have to go to Insert -insert object, then select powerpoint slide from the list.

copy the original file to a different directory
and then made the changes. I would change the name of this file after you have made the changes. Then you can copy/move the file/s back.

You can also burn the origanal file to a CD/DVD

good luck

If you are refering to the text matter only, instead of directly pasting the matter, do

Edit -> Paste Special -> Text Only

This will preserve the text formatting of the target presentation

Take care
