HELP! I Can't Access My Presentation!

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to open a presentation that I worked on for three hours last
night. When I try to open the file, I receive the message "Powerpoint can't
access [filename] becaust the file name is invalid". I've done a number of
prior presentations and the file name looked fine to me, but I tried renaming
the file to no avail. It still won't open. It seems as if the file somehow
became corrupted. Is there any way for me to access it?

I'm using Powerpoint 2002.

Many thanks.

Try File > Open. In the pane on the left side of the Open dialog box choose
recent files. See if it's there -- no guarantees. Sorry.
