SICK OF CREATING THE SAME SLIDES OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

Automatically bringing texts, charts or tables from Excel to Powerpoint has never been easier!

Linking your Powerpoint shapes to Excel

Basically, to connect Powerpoint with Excel, there are only three steps required:

  1. Select a Powerpoint shape
  2. Choose the Excel range
  3. Click the SlideFab crosshair

Easy, isn't it?! Creating a "Hello World" project takes less than two minutes.

Defining the iteration loop

The idea is that the same slides (call them templates if you like) get reproduced with different data. Therefor, SlideFab needs to know two things:

  1. What cell in Excel defines the current loop? This is called the "Loop Master Cell".
  2. In what Excel range are the entries to repeat? This is called the "Loop Candidates Range".

Define these two and the software will create you as many slides and presentations as you wish.

With the links being set up between Powerpoint shapes and Excel ranges and also with the iteration loop in place, it is now time to make some slides.

 

DO YOU NEED MORE POWER?

SlideFab provides cool features and nifty functions... but arguably the best is that it gives you power

SlideFab automates them all

Any special requirements for automation? Well, SlideFab knows them all: It can take a screenshot from Excel, import image files dynamically, fill and conditionally color text boxes and tables based on Excel ranges and so on. When you click a Powerpoint shape, it provides compatible export options. All you need to do is to select the Excel range containing the desired content.

As intelligent as you like

When SlideFab links Powerpoint with Excel, it is automatically utilizing named ranges and Excel tables if possible. This gives the automation settings an extra level of robustness to further Excel changes down the road.
