    You can open .ppt files in Keynote but not Keynote files in Powerpoint.

    And from what I can see, you can't save a Keynote presentation as a ppt file.

    So I think you're out of luck.

    It's quite easy - open the presentation in Keynote, click on file, and down the list you will see "EXPORT". Click on that, it will give you an option, choose from .ppt from the list and presto, the Keynote file will appear in your documents file with 2 files, one will be Keynote and one will be .ppt.

    While you are at it, why don't you click on "send to" from the file menu, so you can send the presentation to your email account with 1 click.

    Lately, I've been exporting from Keynote to Quicktime.

    No surprises that way, and less feature degradation than exporting to PowerPoint.

    Though it is a fine line.

    I recommend if your slides are static to export to .pdf.

    Even with the export powerpoint finds a way to mess up the way everything looks.

    Yep, export to Quicktime or PDF rather than PowerPoint if you can.

    While PP will play Keynote presentations, it can't do all the transitions etc. that Keynote can. It will then downgrade them to something it can do so your presentation may end up looking more basic.

    Movie clips export to Quicktime just fine.
