This article describes how to start PowerPoint and insert slides from one or more presentation files into a single new presentation file. To do this, you can use the -i switch when you start PowerPoint.
To start PowerPoint and insert one or more presentation files into a single new presentation file, follow these steps:
- Create three PowerPoint files. For example, create three files called Start.ppt, Middle.ppt, and Finish.ppt. Save these files in the My Documents folder.
- On the Start menu, click Run.
- In the Open box, type the following command:
powerpnt -i c:\My Documents\start.ppt c:\My Documents
\middle.ppt c:\My Documents\finish.ppt
- Click OK.
PowerPoint starts and creates a new presentation that contains copies of all the slides from Start.ppt, Middle.ppt, and Finish.ppt.
NOTE: This presentation is not based on any of the templates that ship with PowerPoint; however, you can, apply the template you want after PowerPoint creates the presentation.
