The Foundation of a Custom Presentation

Many companies give essentially the same presentation to many customers and would like to customize their presentations to each specific customer. Until now, this could have been a fairly time-consuming project. However, with PowerPoint 97, the task is much easier.

However, the structure of the tables and charts will remain constant. The trick then is to manipulate the underlying data in Excel and create all your tables and charts in Excel.
