Not sure exactly what you're after, but you can try File | Send to Word in PowerPoint. In PPT 2007, it's Office Button | Prepare | Create Handouts in Word.

I'm not sure either but maybe

Insert > Object > Browse to (pptx) File?

Thanks a lot. Now I remember this function ;-) But do you know, how it's possible to define the size of the sheets? I can only select, where the comments shall positioned but can't config how big the sheets will be inside of word. Or is it possible to change the picture size of all pictures inside one Word document without touching each picture separately?

That I've tried out but there was only inserted the first sheet and not the other ones.
Michael, what are you trying to do?

When you use Send to Word from within PPT, you get slide thumbnails in Word. These can be resized individually (as you've found), but to do all of them you'd need to write a Word macro. I usually find it easiest to size one, then select the next and hit F4 (repeat key), then the next and hit F4 again. It's very fast if you only have a few pages of slides.

If you insert as an object it should insert the presentation. Only the first slide will show until right click > Presentation Object > Edit /Show

That's it JSRWilson. Thanks a lot!! I interpreted the first sheet as picture and not as object.
Thank's to Echo_S too.
I will split the amount of Point in 400 to 100, hope that's ok for you.

EE is great if there are so helpful members like you.
Works for me, although John maybe should have gotten all the points. Regardless, I'm glad you got it worked out.
