Hi Alvin,

I am confused about you said:” Other system is able khổng lồ …”, what is the “Other system” please? What are the versions of Office if they can open this Excel file normally?

Is the Excel file is inserted as a link? In this case, the Excel file needs to be copy lớn your computer too & re-links the Excel tệp tin. Otherwise, there is just a picture as a shortcut to the Excel file. If it is inserted as an object, you can refer to lớn the following steps please.

1. You can open the PowerPoint in safe mode (Type the “powerpnt /safe” in Run dialog ), then open the slide và try lớn open the embedded Excel file again. If the Excel tệp tin can be opened, you can disable the add-ins và macros of PowerPoint.

2. If it is failure to lớn open the embedded Excel tệp tin in the safe mode of PowerPoint. You shouldbachồng up the ppt first.

(1) Then open the ppt và try to right-clichồng the embedded Excel tệp tin, clichồng Worksheet Object > Convert, then convert to Microsoft Excel 97-2003 Worksheet.

Then extract the compressed tệp tin, open the unzipped thư mục và open the following folders in order: ppt > embeddings. Do not open the Excel file directly, we should right-cliông chồng the Excel tệp tin, select Open with Internet Explorer, Open, at last save the tệp tin lớn the location on your computer you want in Excel.
