    Hi, I am trying to embed a .swf within a Power Point presentation. I can embed the file ok, but non of my movie clips and tell target functions work! I have heard that I need to script some "Active X" code into power point. Is this true any does any body know how to do it??

    Cheers.

    hmm, i'm pretty sure activex is pc only, though maybe microsoft implemented it for office mac (i doubt it).

    Export it as a quicktime mov, and basic (flash 4 only) actionscript will work, and powerpoint should have no trouble.

    Thanks for the input I have sorted it out now! I embeded a shockwave file into a 97 Power Point app on the PC. this works fine, however it wont work on Power Point 98 because it does not support Active x, but hold on Power Point 2000 does!!!! How stupid is that!

    Anyway Thanks all the same

    u can embed using activex on pc...

    however its very messy, it does accept swf files, but often resets play to false etc.

    Just came accross a nice little example of using projectors:

    for mac and pc
