Microsoft PowerPoint/Password on .pptx not for .ppsx


Hi dear Sir,
As much as I looked for I couldn't find any option for adding password for .pptx format but not for .ppsx.
One of my friends has sent a file which is open in .ppsx but when u open in .pptx it wants password. How is it possible?
If you guide I will appreciate.The version of software is 2007 and my deadline for the question is as soon as is possible.
I've checked tools in save and all options in prepare in office button.
Best regards,
Negin Koushania

Hi Negin,

ppsx is a slideshow and cannot be edited so password is not applicable. pptx is editable so your friend will need to unlock for you to make edits. This is not something you can do.

Hope this was helpful.
