For PowerPoint file simply put a link to the file pointing it to where it is stored.

I have successfully tried it and I know it works.
Not replying would be your prerogative BUT if you do, please offer a solution; NO guess works PLEASE.

Embed Powerpoint PPS with viewer

Postby kenmcd » Tue Dec 21, 2010 12:39 am

.
You will need a viewer to display the files.

One option is the Zoho Viewer.
To use it embed the viewer in your page with an IFrame.

Below is an example for embedding a PPS file (slideshow.pps) which you have uploaded on yourdomain.tld.

Code: Select all

<iframe
src="http://viewer.zoho.com/api/urlview.do?url=http://yourdomain.tld/images/stories/slideshow.pps"
width="640"
height="550"
cache="true"
embed="true"
frameborder="0">
</iframe>


You can do something similar with the Google Docs Viewer.

Code: Select all

<iframe
src="http://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://yourdomain.tld/images/stories/slideshow.pps&embedded=true"
width="640"
height="550"
style="border: none;">
</iframe>



The Zoho Viewer supports many more file types than the Google Docs Viewer.
