Hi Everyone,

we are facing an issue when opening a file shared in chat. We cannot open it. Please see attached screens (I just had to cover the name of the file). Does anyone know what can be the cause? Will appreciate your support.Error.pngError1.JPGError2.JPGError3.JPG

Solution
Will it open in PowerPoint online?

Also try this and see if there’s any difference:

Open PowerPoint---file---- click on File---options--- trust center----trust center settings ---protected view—uncheck all the options.
In the trusted documents----check allow the documents on a network to be trusted. And click ok.

Hi Adam, it works now. Thanks very much!
