Thanks for the note.
From what I understand, the maximum size for embedding a music file in PowerPoint is 50 MB, so dividing the 200 MB file into four wouldn't work anyways (good thought, though). Also, the wav file is the only kind of file that will embed into PowerPoint . . . from what I've read, correct me if I'm wrong. Sooo, I'll continue to research this, as it's not an easy "nut" to crack! Thanks so much for your input.
