Excel updating merge
In a nutshell: PPTMerge uses "field names" that you define in your data file, searches for them in the PPT template file and replaces them with actual data from your data file.Start with a data file in Excel XLS, Comma Separated Value (CSV) or Tab Delimited format.
And you already have a sample presentation designed. Before your fingers fall off from sheer exhaustion. In only a few seconds, it can create a new presentation just like your template, add a new slide for each award winner, and replace your the placeholders in your template with "live" information taken from your Excel, Tab-delimited or Comma Separated Value (CSV) data file. PPTMerge reduces hours of boring, repetitive and error-prone work to a few mouse-clicks.Here's an example template file for just such an awards ceremony: Note: By default, Merge looks for PIC:, SND:, etc.files in the same folder as the merge template PPT file.You could laboriously retype or copy/paste the names and other information into Power Point and then import all the pictures one by one. One PPTMerge customer used PPTMerge to do exactly this. In less time than it would take to personalize one presentation by hand, PPTMerge customizes dozens or even hundreds of them.He had time to create and test the template and data file format in advance, but on the night of the ceremony, he received the list of award winners only minutes before the presentation "went live" in front of an audience. PPTMerge is a lifesaver whenever you have data that you need to turn into a series of slides or presentations.
