Dear Michael,

YES,, I would like as much extra details as you are willing to give. 
Like I said I am in a crunch on this one and if I can export the 
Powerpoint to Keynote and then bring into REV then that will save me 
months of time. I then will not be in a crunch. :-)

I just told my boss that he had to buy Keynote and since we just bought 
a new Powerbook 15" there is even a $50.00 discount. he is going to buy 
it tomorrow.

Thanks again,
