Create SL2 slides from a word document or excel spreadsheet
Hi guys....me again
I am trying to import 500 definitions into SL2 as slides, rather than quiz questions.
Each definition has a heading and some body text....i.e. 2 pieces of text per slide.
The closest I have come so far is to create a word table (2 columns/ 500 rows) and mailmerge to individual documents. I then use "send to powerpoint" which should give me 500 slides but I have a feeling control characters get in the way. I would then import the slides.
I have put them into excel and read them in a "quiz" items one per page but I am unable to get the text without the paraphernalia that goes with the quiz question. I just want text.
I will open a sandbox slide for a definition depending on how i wish to arrange things once inside SL2.
If I am able to import them as quiz items and draw at random with the extra "quiz" stuff that would be perfect.
Anyone any ideas please?
I am both old and fairly IT savvy so I am able to cope with most things so if it turns out to be something using DOS scripting or similar I can cope. This would save me so much time and open up so many opportunities I have to give it a bit more time so if any ideas please share.
Regards and thanks
