Default How to import a list of names into PowerPoint from Excel?

Hello,

I would like to import a list of names (about 50) from an Excel document into PowerPoint in such a way that each name is on a seperate slide.


Ideally I would also like to import a picture with each name as well.

Does anyone know how to do this?/Whether this can be done?

Thanks,

George

Hi george,

Try something based on the following Excel macro:
Code:
Sub Excel2PwrPt()
' Requires a reference to Microsoft PowerPoint Object Library
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim StrPath As String, LRow As Long, i As Long, x As Long
StrPath = "C:\Users\George\Documents\"
Dim PwrPt As PowerPoint.Application
Dim pptPres As PowerPoint.Presentation
Dim pptSld As PowerPoint.Slide
Dim pptLayout As PowerPoint.CustomLayout
' Create an instance of PowerPoint
Set PwrPt = New PowerPoint.Application
PwrPt.Visible = True
' Open the presentation
Set pptPres = PwrPt.Presentations.Open(Filename:=StrPath & "Presentation1.ppt")
x = pptPres.Slides.Count
' Reference active slide
Set pptSld = pptPres.Slides(x)
With Worksheets("Sheet1")
  LRow = .Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
  For i = 1 To LRow
    pptPres.Slides.Add Index:=x + i, Layout:=ppLayoutTitleOnly
    ' Insert the Excel Cell's value from Column A into the slide title
    pptPres.Slides(x + i).Shapes(1).TextFrame.TextRange.Text = .Cells(i, 1).Value
    ' Insert the picture referenced in Column B
    pptPres.Slides(x + i).Shapes.AddPicture Filename:=StrPath & .Cells(i, 2).Value, _
     LinkToFile:=False, Top:=100, Left:=150, Width:=400, SaveWithDocument:=True
  Next i
End With
' Clean up
Set pptSld = Nothing: Set pptPres = Nothing: Set PwrPt = Nothing
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

Question

Thank you Paul for sharing the code.

Could you please elaborate more how can the code be used? In the attached screenshot, for example, I need to included two fields from the excel file into the powerpoint. How such thing can be accomplished using the code?

Hi Jamal,

As written, the code simply inserts text content from column A in the Excel workbook into the first textbox on the new slides it creates (it also inserts a picture onto the page - as per the OP's requirements). You don't need your <Name> or <Course> tags for that. Obviously, if your needs are different, the code would need to be modified to suit - it's not a one-size-fits-all solution.

PS: Please don't automatically quote the entire previous post in your replies. If there is a particular element in the previous post that you need to reference, quote just that part.
