I have a master Powerpoint document that I use as a template with which to create new reports; changing keywords in title headings, table content and images specific to each project.   Format stays the same.
If my project-specific content is coming from either a field/cell in an excel document or is an image such as a png file, is there a way I can use variables within the Powerpoint template to refer to local files (png images) or a local excel file (a cell within excel), so that the Powerpoint for each report auto-loads and displays the content from these sources?
