I found a little macro that will do the work for you.
I tested it and it works but you have to do some settings around macros in ppt.
My translation is not perfect to that but i'll try.
- Enable visual basic:
enable the developer-tools in ppt by going to file-options-menubar, make a check to the "developer tools". leave by clicking ok.
- get the needed exelobjects for ppt:
go to the new tab "developer-tools" and select "visual basic"
then select "extras" on the top and after that "lookup". Find and make a check on "microsoft excel 14.0 object library" or similar. end it by clicking ok
- build a module for the macrocode:
do a right-click on the first line of the "project-explorer", f.e. "vba-project(myproject)", choose insert, module
paste the macrocode into the new code-window seen in the middle
'*** Original Sourcecode taken from http://superuser.com/questions/323408/excel-data-into-powerpoint-slides ***
'Open the Excel workbook. Change the filename here.
Dim OWB As New Excel.Workbook
Set OWB = Excel.Application.Workbooks.Open("C:\Tmp\List1.xlsx")
'Grab the first Worksheet in the Workbook
Dim WS As Excel.Worksheet
Dim sCurrentText As String
Dim sIdentifier As String
Dim oSl As Slide
Dim oSh As Shape
Set WS = OWB.Worksheets(1)
Dim i As Long
'Loop through each used row in Column A
For i = 3 To WS.Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Row
Debug.Print "Bin hier"
'Copy the first slide and paste at the end of the presentation
Set oSl = ActivePresentation.Slides(ActivePresentation.Slides.Count)
For c = 1 To 3
sCurrentText = WS.Cells(i, c).Value
sIdentifier = WS.Cells(2, c).Value
' find each shape with sIdentifier of the current column (e.g. "field1~", "field2~", and so on) in text, replace it with value from worksheet
For Each oSh In oSl.Shapes
' Make sure the shape can hold text and if is, that it IS holding text
If oSh.HasTextFrame Then
If oSh.TextFrame.HasText Then
' it's got text, do the replace
.Replace sIdentifier, sCurrentText
go back to the default ppt-view by clicking the symbol to the top-left or by hitting alt+f11
- build exelsheet:
build an excel-sheet with 1-3 columns (for 1-3 textfields) stored at the same name and folder like in the macro. f.e. "C:\Tmp\List1.xlsx"
the first row is not used
the second row names the default-text of the depending textfield like "field1"
the next rows should include the text of every following slide
not used not used
5.build a ppt:
insert a texfield to the first slide and just write "field1" to it
insert a second textfield and just write "field2" to it
maybe you have to rearrange the following top-slides after the macro has finished
because only the top one will be used to make copies and fills
- run the macro at the developer-tab, macros, run macro
if you understand how the macro works and with a little vba experience you can change the code
for your special wants
hope i could help a little bit
