See more: C# PDF Powerpoint
Hello,
 
is there a way to import a PDF file into a PowerPoint file?
 
I need to import about 300 PDF files with 40-50 pages into a PowerPoint file every month.
 
Can you give me a hint how to do that in C#?
 

Thanks

What you mean "import pdf into Power Point file"? There is no automation process...
Does pdf files contain images and text or only text?

The request does not make a lot of sense, because you also need to define how to map pages into frames, completely different concepts.
But let me tell you that you are doing bad business. The whole activity makes no sense. Well, you "convert" it, now what? What is the value of all this. None!

As Maciej Los liked my suggestion I'll post it as a solution - it might stop you getting flamed too

As an aside, I suspect this is some sort of corporate report collation exercise as it has to happen every month (we have do something similar) - it might be worth trying to convince them that they really want the reports in PDF format and just merge the individual reports into a single PDF
