Exporting Crystal Report to MS PowerPoint

I have a Crystal Report with charts that I would like to export to PowerPoint. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Also, I would like to use our company PowerPoint template for this presentation. Should I use it as a template in CR and if so how, or wait until the file is in PP and then apply the template?

I am using Crystal XI version 11.0.0.1282.

Thank you very much!

    Crystal doesnu2019t support the functionally to export to Power point and import the power point document as template.

    HI,

    Its not possible as suggested by Naga.

    However zou can try to export to PDF and take a snapshot to move to PPT.

    And coming to template format, Template in Crystal is a rpt file and hence you can either keep that in Crystal Report or else in Power-point document itself.

    Thanks,

    Kiran.

      Thank you both for your assistance. Do you mean that I can set up a template in CR using our company presentation template? But that file is in PP format. Sorry if I misunderstand what you said. Please explain how I can do this, if at all.

    Hi,

    As Naga and Kiran suggested that it is not possible to export.

    We have a option to insert a Power Point presentation or macros into Crystal Reports .

    Click on INSERT menu and select OLE Object

    It will opens a INsert object window.

    If you want to insert new presentation then select Create from Existing check box and select MicroSoft Power point from the Drop down box

    or you want to insert existing slides then select Create New check box and browse for the file.

    Cheers,

    Praveen G

      Hey-

      What I have done in the past is export the report to Excel and then use an Excel macro to create the PowerPoint. I have found this easier than exporting to PDF. Just thought I'd share!
