[CASE-OPENED] Saving Advanced graph output to PowerPoint

I have a series of graphs, some are individual, and some would need to be paired with a report on the same page.

The output for each needs to be in PowerPoint. How do I do this?

JohnB,

I would use the Composer. Create a new procedure and when you go to create the name for it change the "Create with:" from Procedure Viewer to Composer. From there you can arrange things on the page like you would with the HTML composer but put your output to powerpoint

Hi,

I have done this in the past. First I create a powerpoint templated (just has 1 slide) and place that template in the app directory of where I am creating the Power point report.

I then create a compound document using composer. Change the output format on the propertied to Power poiont and then for Template Name give it the name of the template I put in the app path. I then build the compound document with graphs and or reports. Each page translates to a power point slide when I run the fex.

I have used this in webfocus 7.6.11 and webfocus 8 and it works in both. (skipped 7.7 but same technique should work there)
