Charlie''s Word VBA questions

I am starting my first presentation using PowerPoint 2003 in Windows XP Home
Edition. I have received .pps files in emails and downloaded them from the
web. They have both pictures and music and work great. These seem to be
embedded in the PowerPoint presentation .pps file. A couple of times, the
pictures in the slides and/or the music were received as attachments. But, I
assume that these objects can be embedded within the PP presentation file so
that they don't have to be attachments.

The question is "How to embed pictures and music tracks". The PP help
didn't help me.

Sincere thanks for any guidance on this.

For pictures, don't do anything special, and they will be embedded. When
inserting, you can choose an option to have them linked, but you have to
choose this specially.

Sounds are a little more complicated. For sounds, only .wav files can be
embedded so anything that is not a .wav file will be linked. However,
not all .wav files are embedded. In the Tools > Options > General dialog
box, there is an option for "Link sounds with file size greater than."
Any .wav sound that is larger than this number will be linked. Smaller
files will be embedded. You can set this number to be very large (49,999
KB) to be sure that almost any .wav file is embedded.
