In Microsoft PowerPoint 97, when you open a presentation that was created in PowerPoint 2002, many of the slides in the presentation have no content. The first slide and several subsequent slides contain the expected content, but the remaining slides appear to be empty master slides.


This behavior can occur if the presentation created in PowerPoint 2002 contains multiple masters.


To resolve this issue, obtain and install the PowerPoint 97 SR1 patch. For additional information about obtaining SR1, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
