expression. Export( FileName, FilterName, ScaleWidth, ScaleHeight )

expression A variable that represents a Slide object.


NameRequired/OptionalData TypeDescription
FileNameRequiredStringThe name of the file to be exported and saved to disk. You can include a full path; if you don't, Microsoft PowerPoint creates a file in the current folder.
FilterNameRequiredStringThe graphics format in which you want to export slides. The specified graphics format must have an export filter registered in the Windows registry. You can specify either the registered extension or the registered filter name. Microsoft PowerPoint will first search for a matching extension in the registry. If no extension that matches the specified string is found, PowerPoint will look for a filter name that matches.
ScaleWidthOptionalLongThe width in pixels of an exported slide.
ScaleHeightOptionalLongThe height in pixels of an exported slide.


Exporting a presentation doesn't set the Saved property of a presentation to True.

PowerPoint uses the specified graphics filter to save each individual slide. The names of the slides exported and saved to disk are determined by PowerPoint. They are typically saved by using names such as Slide1.wmf, Slide2.wmf. The path of the saved files is specified in the FileName argument.


This example exports slide three in the active presentation to disk in the JPEG graphic format. The slide is saved as Slide 3 of Annual Sales.jpg.

With Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(3)
    .Export "c:\my documents\Graphic Format\" &; _
        "Slide 3 of Annual Sales", "JPG"
End With
