    Powerpoint excel integration

    Here is my situation: I capture client information and create tables and charts in excel. I then paste as links this information into a powerpoint template (about 80 pages) to create client presentations. Tables, charts and legends almost always go in the same place. However, every time I make a presentation, it's as if I have to do it from start. I also end up typing a bunch of client information (names, ages, etc.) into text boxes in powerpoint.

    Issue: Is it possible to automatically create my powerpoint presentation from excel without copying and pasting 20 something tables and charts? This is a repetitive process which should be programmable.

    Another (related) issue I have is typing in repeating data from excel (e.g., client information such as names and ages) into text boxes in powerpoint. I would be great if powerpoint looked up this info in the excel file and filled out everything automatically.

    I can't be the only one with this problem, but I've literally spent hours trying to figure out a solution. I would be very appreciative for any suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    Hi Frank,

    I found this link the other day which I thought was very nice to know and helpful.
    I create a lot of excel documents which I have linked to Powerpoint, but very simple about 25 slides only and these are updated monthly.

    Look at this link, it may be the answer to your prays!!

    Hi,

    Yes you can definitely do this. But, what you need to do is you create a master powerpoint file and update all the excel data into the powerpoint in the below manner.

    Copy data from excel and while pasting into powerpoint click on Paste special - Paste link as "Microsoft Office Excel Chart Object"
    Now you will have the same data from Excel to Powerpoint.
    Whenever you open the powerpoint file it will ask a message whether to Update the link or not.

    This helps in having the powerpoint updated whenever you update anything on the excel. This way your powerpoint is fully automated.
