sound for PP2007

I'm trying to embed a wav file into my presentation, but it will not work. It
keeps linking the file. When I go to email it, it will not play unless the
person saves it to their desktop. I have Windows 7, and can't find the
Tools/Options/General tab where I can select the option to embed files larger
than 50,000KB (or something like that?).
I want to be able to send it out and the presentation start up with the
music playing and the slides transitioning every 4 seconds. I've gotten
everything done, but the music.
Please help! Thanks Jenna

Hi Jenna
In 2007 this option is in Office Button (the big one) > PowerPoint Options >
Advanced (scroll down)

You can't embed files larger than 50 MB.

The actual help is: "By default, only .wav (WAV: A file format in which
Windows stores sounds as waveforms. Such files have the extension .wav.
Depending on various factors, one minute of sound can occupy as little as
644 kilobytes or as much as 27 megabytes of storage.) (waveform audio data)
sound files under 100 kilobytes (KB) each in size are embedded in your
presentation. All other media file types and .wav files greater than 100 KB
are linked. If you want the .wav sound file to be contained inside the
presentation, you can increase the size of the embedded file to a maximum of
50,000 KB (50 megabytes). However, raising this limit also increases the
overall size of your presentation and may slow down its performance."

The location is where John posted, Office Orb, PowerPoint Options, Advanced,
scroll almost all way to bottom. Increase to size needed.
