Summary
This article describes the Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 issues that are fixed in the PowerPoint 2003 post-Service Pack 3 hotfix package that is dated November 26, 2007.
INTRODUCTION

List of issues that are fixed

This hotfix package fixes the following issues that were not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • You use an Open Document Management API (ODMA) solution that is integrated with Microsoft Office 2003. When you send an Office PowerPoint presentation as an attachment to an e-mail message, the subject line of the e-mail message does not contain the file name of the presentation. Instead, the subject line contains a nonspecific file name.
  • You open a presentation in PowerPoint 2003. Then, you use an HTTP URL in Windows Internet Explorer 7 to open a second presentation. When you try to work in one of the presentations, nothing happens. For example, when you click a toolbar button or a menu command, nothing happens.
