Pulling PowerPoint Data (Extract) to an Excel Spreadsheet

Hi All,

I was wondering if there was a way to automate pulling data from a PPT to an excel spreadsheet. I know of the opposite but I haven’t read anything about a PPT to an excel.

Note, this is only pulling certain fields (area) within the PPT to bring it into the excel spreadsheet.

No luck with responses here.


Interesting idea :slight_smile: now If I were you I would try and leverage the UiAutomation activities to extract data from the PPT .

Now the real PITA resides in the fact that you would also have to automate the navigation through the PPT since we have not implemented something that would tell PowerPoint to open at a certain slide.


Hi @JohnnyTAK ,

Maybe you could Check out the UiPath.Presentations.Activities package, It contains an Activity to Convert to PDF. So maybe after Converting to PDF, you might have a Better Chance of Extracting Table Data.

Thank you both! I’ll give it a try and comeback shortly.
