PPT2000: How to Copy Multiple Slides into a Word Document

ID: Q198200

The information in this article applies to:


If you copy more than one slide from the Slide Sorter and paste it into a non-PowerPoint file, such as a Word document, you see only the first slide. If you double-click the image of the first slide, PowerPoint starts and runs a slide show of the slides that you copied.


PowerPoint provides two kinds of OLE objects: slides and presentations. Both types of objects appear in your Word document as a single slide. You create a PowerPoint slide object by copying a single slide from the Slide Sorter and pasting it into another document. You create a PowerPoint presentation object by copying several slides from the slide sorter and pasting them into another document.


There are 2 methods for copying your PowerPoint slides to Microsoft Word.

Method 1

To have more than one slide image appear in your Word document, copy the slides one at a time from Slide Sorter view.

Method 2

Use the Send to Word feature to send your entire presentation to Microsoft Word.
  1. From the File menu, point to Send To, and click Microsoft Word.

  2. Select the desired Page Layout, and whether you want to Paste or Paste Link the slides into Microsoft Word.

  3. Click OK.


If you want an image of every slide in a presentation sent to a Word document, on the PowerPoint File menu, point to Send to, and click Microsoft Word.

For more information about the Sent to Microsoft Word feature (Write-Up), click the Office Assistant, type How do I send my slides to Word, click Search, and then click to view Send notes, handouts, or and outline to Microsoft Word.

NOTE: If the Assistant is hidden, click the Office Assistant button on the Standard toolbar. If Microsoft Help is not installed on your computer, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
