powerpoint found an error that it can't correct

I am working with a large powerpoint file (210 slides) and every time I make changes and try to save the file I get "PowerPoint found an error that it cant's correct.  You should save presentations, quit, and the restart Powerpoint."


Any ideas?

Are you able to save the file at all? Maybe try Save As and see if you can save it under a different name.

Once you get the file closed, then reopen PPT and go to Office Button | PPT Options | Resources. Run Office Diagnostics there.

In addition, make sure you have a local printer driver installed and set as the default printer. Sounds weird, I know, but it really might fix the issue. Here's info on what to do:http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00952.htm

Finally, it could be a conflicting add-in. If you go to Office Button | PPT Options | Add-ins, what is listed there?
