Experts,

I am using CR2008 and have a report that I am manually coping and pasting 30 charts into MS PowerPoint 2010.  PowerPoint is the requested final output unfortunately..  

Does anyone know how I can automate this process?  Perhaps  CR2012 has this function built in?  I am not using BOE.

Thanks!

Crystal doesn't export to PowerPoint directlyl. Do you have BusinessObjects Enterprise?  If so, you can use the Live Office plug in to embed report parts (like charts) directly into a PowerPoint slide and it will enable you to pull live data directly into the presentation.

I am afraid I am not using it..  What about exporting to word and a macro that pulls data into PowerPoint?  Any ideas?

There are convertors available to convert a PDF to PowerPoint.

You could export the Crystal to PDF then use one of them to convert to PowerPoint.

Unfortunately no.  If I had used any at all, I would recommend one.
