Pasting Excel cells into Powerpoint

Posted by Keith Jones on October 30, 2001 2:53 AM

I'm trying to paste around 30 columns by 16 rows into Powerpoint and find that I'm missing the last 6 rows on the Powerpoint slide.

I've matched the zoom levels on both applications, tried to add more data columns etc. etc. but can't fix the problem.

Can anyone please help with this annoying problem??

Many thanks,

I think powerpoint is limits the number of characters wide it will display on paste from excel. You may be able to change the width of the columns or try converting your excel range to a MS Word table, then pasting the Word table. (or maybe paste two ranges from Excel and try to align them.

I sometimes paste the cells in to Paint, then copy from Paint and paste in to Powerpoint as a bitmap image. I overcome a lot of hassles in formatting doing it that way.

You don't have to go to Paint, just Paste Special as Image and get the same results.
