If you want to extract the specific slides of a PowerPoint presentation to a separate new presentation and attach it to an Outlook email, you can utilize the way shared in this article.
Instead of attaching an entire PowerPoint presentation to an email, if you want to attach the specific slides of the presentation, in general, you need to first copy the specific slides to a new presentation. It is too troublesome. Therefore, here we’ll show you a method which can realize it in one go.
Attach the Specific Slides of a PowerPoint Presentation to an Email
- First off, open the specific PowerPoint presentation.
- Then, in the PowerPoint application window, press “Alt + F11” keys to access VBA editor.
- Next, in the new window, create a new module by hitting “Insert” > “Module”.
- Subsequently, copy and paste the following VBA code into this module.
Sub AttachSpecificSlidesToOutlookEmail() Dim objActivePresetation As Presentation Dim objSlide As Slide Dim n As Long Dim strName As String Dim strTempPresetation As String Dim objTempPresetation As Presentation Dim objOutlookApp As Object Dim objMail As Object Set objActivePresetation = ActivePresentation For Each objSlide In objActivePresetation.Slides objSlide.Tags.Delete ("Selected") Next 'Add a tag "Selected" to the selected slides For n = 1 To ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange.Count ActiveWindow.Selection.SlideRange(n).Tags.Add "Selected", "YES" Next n strName = objActivePresetation.Name strName = Left(strName, InStrRev(strName, ".") - 1) strTempPresetation = Environ("TEMP") & "\" & strName & ".pptx" 'Copy the active presentation to a temp presentation objActivePresetation.SaveCopyAs strTempPresetation Set objTempPresetation = Presentations.Open(strTempPresetation) 'Remove the untagged slides For n = objTempPresetation.Slides.Count To 1 Step -1 If objTempPresetation.Slides(n).Tags("Selected") <> "YES" Then objTempPresetation.Slides(n).Delete End If Next n objTempPresetation.Save objTempPresetation.Close 'Attach the temp presentation to a new email Set objOutlookApp = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set objMail = objOutlookApp.CreateItem(olMailItem) 'Change the email details as per your needs With objMail .To = "firstname.lastname@example.org" .Subject = strName .Body = "Dear," & vbCr & vbCr & vbTab & "Specific slides are extracted and attached." .Attachments.Add strTempPresetation .Display End With End Sub
- After that, you can close the current window.
- Later, go to “File” > “Options” > “Quick Access Toolbar” to add the new macro to Quick Access Toolbar.
- Finally, you can try this macro.
- For a start, select the specific slides which you want to extract.
- Then, click the macro button in Quick Access Toolbar.
- At once, an Outlook email will show up, in which there is a PowerPoint presentation that is extracted from the source presentation.
