    I’ve tried to open this resource on two different computers and it tells me it needs to repair. When I click repair it says it can’t be repaired. Anyone else having this problem?

    Hi Julie, thank you for your comment. Sometimes this error happens with older versions of PowerPoint or some school versions which prevent PowerPoint templates being opened. Can you please try right clicking on the file in your download folder and then selecting ‘Open’ from the drop down menu. This should allow you to access the file without the error message. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
