SAS can generate nice figures and tables in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel format, but it hasn't been easy for SAS to generate Microsoft PowerPoint slides. This paper introduces a method that combines the power of Windows Scripting technology with SAS ODS and SAS/GRAPH to automate the process of PowerPoint slides generation. Using this method, a PowerPoint presentation with dozens of slides made of figures and tables can be generated by a single SAS run in just a couple of minutes! Better yet, the figures and tables are editable, almost like native PowerPoint tables and figures.
