Object representation of a pptx file

    Hi guys,

    We need to manipulate pptx (PowerPoint 2007) files outside of
    PowerPoint on the server side.

    PPTX is a zip file with XML files, other artefacts (images, etc.)
    inside it.

    I wonder if anyone knows any commercial or open source offering that
    allows a file to be read and then represented as an object format - of
    course we could do our own but if there's an option out there, it
    would be good to look at.

    Cheers

    Graham

    I doubt he is since that link says:

    #It does not support the new PowerPoint 2007 .pptx file format

    and he wrote:

    Try looking for one of the OOXML plugins for OOo. They must have
    some source code.

    That could be extremely costly depending on how much you need to
    change. OOXML is a very complex format.
