    This is like my idea I posted - search for "Big dream of an idea - Would it be possible to integrate Excel, Word & PowerPoint, and/or Access/SQL??"

    @Scott[MSFT] - Did you know that in Excel Ver 5 (1993) you could right click on a sheet and say insert -> Slide

    This feature was promptly removed in the next version - because MS realized that nobody would then buy Power point

    @Chris Newman - Also left you comment through site but I could not complete order process to try evaluation version. "Total cannot be 0" at checkout.

    That would be great. Actually we are using several VBA Solutions to create presentations automatically.

    - f.e. save one presentation for any row of a large Excel PivotTable by pressing a button. This saves days at creating nearly 800 different presentations.
    - to fill several objects of different slides by connecting cell references to slides and form names (Some VBA Code at YouTube (German) : https://youtu.be/K3zvMrrYaHM )
    - for mass printing of different Excel rows to the same type of slide (certificates like mail merge in Word)

    The implemented solution could be a simple list of cell and object references to the path of a PowerPoint template, the slide number or type of slide and the name of the destinatíon form.

    Thanks again
    Andreas

    This would be awesome if this feature was baked into Excel. If you google search "E2P Excel", I've created an Excel add-in that will easily do this for you. Could give Microsoft an idea for tackling this request :)

    I made this into a macro - press a keyboard shortcut and the chart is copied and centered into a new slide after the active one. Huge timesaver.

    This is something done quite often. We have to write code to do this currently, which is quite popular. Having this functionality natively would be used quite a bit I imagine. Good idea Rajender!

    Indeed, that would be grateful if we have a feature in excel wherein we can export the excel sheet charts and objects into power point slides. That would indeed help us in minimizing the man efforts and also improve the quality of work, innovative thing I must say and appreciate.

    Its an awesome faeture, which helps to reduce the workload & improves the quality of Excel & powerpoint.
