Have you ever created a Word document and later needed to use it for a PowerPoint presentation?
It is actually very simple to move a Word document into PowerPoint.
Word 2003 (and prior versions)
Open the document you wish to use.
Click on File | Send To and choose “Microsoft Office PowerPoint.”
NOTE: To create the most usable PowerPoint, you must ensure that the Word document has already been setup using Headers. Heading 1 style from Word will convert to the Title Text within the PowerPoint slide, and so on. Text that does not have a style assigned in Word will not convert to the PowerPoint file.
HINT: Tables, Images, and diagrams will not convert to PowerPoint. These items must be copied and pasted into each PowerPoint slide accordingly.
The “Sent To” function does not work in Word 2007.
To create a PowerPoint presentation from Word 2007, you must open PowerPoint 2007 first.
Click on the Office button and choose “Open” or choose “Open” from the QuickAccess Toolbar.
In the “Files of Type” drop down, choose “All Outlines.”
Double-click to open the Word document.
Notice that the same rules apply as with older versions of Office – text that does not have a style applied will not be converted.
One the text is converted to PowerPoint, simply apply any formatting and layouts you wish within PowerPoint, as usual.
