This is an archive related to a previous version of ArcGIS Maps for Office. If you need the current version go to

Create a PowerPoint slide

Once you have created a map in Excel, you can easily create a Microsoft PowerPoint slide containing an image of the map for use in presentations. See the following steps:

  1. Click the Create Slide button in the Share section of the Esri Maps tab.
    Create Slide button on the Ribbon

Esri Maps for Office opens Microsoft PowerPoint and creates a new slide containing the map. The map contained in the slide is a static image and is no longer interactive as it was in Excel (that is, you can no longer pan or zoom). If you want to create a dynamic map slide (a map that you can interact with during a PowerPoint presentation), see Add a map to a PowerPoint slide.
