Microsoft PowerPoint export options
By default, tables are exported to PowerPoint as charts.
Specify whether the export should create charts only, tables only, or both tables and charts, and whether the chart or the table should be shown first.
Tables and charts are created using Microsoft Excel, so you need to have both PowerPoint and Excel installed to be able to use these options.
Default chart type
Select a chart type from the list. If you want to use a custom chart that you have created in Excel, type in the name of the custom chart.
The chart type you select is used only if you have not specified a chart type for a table using the Table Properties dialog on the View Tables tab.
Hide PowerPoint during export
Hides PowerPoint during the export. This makes the export faster.
Launch PowerPoint after export
Opens PowerPoint, and the file that contains the exported tables.
Apply PowerPoint template
To use a PowerPoint template other than the default, click Browse, and then select another template. By default, PowerPoint templates are stored in subfolders under a Microsoft Office templates folder, for example, C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\Presentation Designs and have the file extension .pot.
Save to file
Check this box and enter a name and location for the output file, or click Browse to browse to the folder where you want to save it. If you do not specify a save location, and the Launch after export option is also not selected, you are prompted to either launch the associated application or select a save location.

When you export to PowerPoint a title slide is created automatically. If you do not want to include the title slide, deselect this box.

Tables that include a large number of rows or columns (~ 1000) might not display all of the table information after being exported to PowerPoint. It is recommended that these tables be instead exported to Microsoft Excel.
