Creating Vector Art in PowerPoint

Is it possible to create vector art in PowerPoint?  I like (and understand) PowerPoint for design purposes but ultimately I need vector art files for professional printing (labels, etc...).

Free solutions are always appreciated but I'm willing to pay for an app if that's what it takes.

Thanks

I saved the PPT file as a WMF file and then opened it in InkScape.  It worked great EXCEPT one problem.  One element of the PPT slide was a logo in BMP.  When I open the file in InkScape, the logo part is missing.  

Any suggestions?

thanks,
Darin
Well, a bitmap image is not a vector image, that's probably why it didn't go over.  If you have BMP file, I believe you can either embed or link to this file.  Check out the help file under Importing an Image.  I believe you can also convert a BMP image to a vector image.  Again you'd have to look it up in their Help file as I've only tried Inkscape once and found I didn't have a need for this type of program.
I was able to get vector PDF file for the logo and that worked great.  Thanks for the excellent help!
