Default Create multiple slides from list of slide titles

Hello and thanks in advance for any help.



I need to create a huge presentation. I have a list of topics and want to create a slide for each topic in my list. The list is 74 topics long, so creating the slides one at a time would be tedious . The list is just a word file but can easily be pasted into something, or made into a csv file, or whatever.

I can handle VBA if pointed in the right direction, if necessary, but hopefully there's an easier way? Thanks again for any suggestions.

Oh, I need to finish the presentation within a week, so I'm praying for quick replies.

Cheers,

Roscoe

Select all the text in Word and change the style to "Heading 1"

Save it and close

Open PPT and File Open

In the type box lower right that says something like All PowerPoint presentations change to All Outlines and open the file. It should creat the slide.
