    Hello, could someone give me a hand? Have a TableView that loads individual ppt files from a folder called powerpoints. I am now trying to get those to display in a UIWebView in a different ViewController. In my TableView didSelectRow I have:
        NSString *selectedCountry = [self.files objectAtIndex:indexPath.row];
    	Songs *dvController = [[Songs alloc] initWithNibName:@"Songs" bundle:[NSBundle mainBundle]];
    	dvController.selectedCountry = selectedCountry;
    	[self.navigationController pushViewController:dvController animated:YES];
    	[dvController release];
    	dvController = nil;
    In my viewDidLoad of the other ViewController with the webView, I have:

     NSString *thetitle = [[selectedCountry lastPathComponent] stringByDeletingPathExtension];
        self.title = thetitle;
        NSString *path = [[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:selectedCountry ofType:@"ppt"];
        NSURL *url = [NSURL fileURLWithPath:path];
        NSURLRequest *request = [NSURLRequest requestWithURL:url];
        [savedweb loadRequest:request];
    But this crashes with error:
    -[NSURL initFileURLWithPath:]: nil string parameter'
    Any ideas?

    This line is not returning what you think:

    NSString *path = [[NSBundle mainBundle] pathForResource:selectedCountry ofType:mad:"ppt"];
