How many ppt graphs are you try to load? Can your graph fit in the screen? Is this a regular task or just a one time thing?
Hope to hear from you soon. I will try my best to help you out.

gunner445,

See if any of these can do your job:

Method 1. In Power point, load all your pictures, and then save them as GIF file.  You VB picturebox can load GIF files;

Method 2.  In Your VB form, drop a OLE control. The OLE dialog box appear, and then select "Create from file", and then select your file, click ok, ok. Your ppt graph is in your form like a picture box.

Hope this helps.  If not, please let me know.
Best wishes

gunner445,
Could you explain what you want to do in a little more detail?
You want the user to enter a filename, which is a ppt file, and then load to a picture box?
Regards.

Try this to see if OK

Drop an OLE container Control in your form, Name OLE1

When you get the filrename,
Add code:    
 OLE1.SourceDoc = "YourFile.ppt"
 OLE2.Action = 1
