Hello There:

Does anyone know how to incorporate visio diagrams into a powerpoint presentation?

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

hi Carmine.....

this should help you........

From INDEZINE :

Inserting Visio Content

You cannot insert Visio content into PowerPoint in Visio's native drawing format. Either you'll need to link to an existing or newly-created Visio drawing as an object - or export from Visio to a graphic format and thereafter import it into PowerPoint. Between the two methods, you'll have to choose the latter if you want to transport your presentation to a system without Visio installed. Let's examine the Insert -> Object route:

1. In PowerPoint, go to Insert -> Object. In the resultant dialog box, choose the 'Create New' option and select 'Microsoft Visio Drawing'. Click OK.

2. Visio opens with the 'Choose Drawing Type' option. Make your selection and decide if would like to use the colour scheme from the PowerPoint presentation - thereafter create your diagram.

3. Click anywhere outside the Visio area to go back to PowerPoint.

The second method is more straight-forward. Although you cannot edit the original drawing this way, the resultant presentation will be more compact and portable:

1. Open or create a Visio diagram. Choose File -> Save As.

2. The resultant 'Save As' dialog box allows you to save the diagram to several graphic formats - both vector and raster. In all you can save to 28 formats - we'll choose WMF (it's the second last option) since that's the best format to transport graphic content between Microsoft applications. WMF can also be natively edited within PowerPoint as a drawing - although not as diagram! It can also be thereafter animated.

3. In PowerPoint, choose Insert -> Picture -> From File and navigate to and choose the WMF file.

There's also a third method - although it merely automates the second method:

1. Copy your diagram while in Visio.

2. In PowerPoint, choose Edit -> Paste Special and then choose the Picture option in the resultant dialog box after copying a diagram from Visio to the clipboard.

Of course you can also emulate the first method by simply dragging a drawing from a Visio window into a PowerPoint slide.

Carmine: I've often just copied and pasted (or pasted special as enhanced metafile).

If you do not paste as picture, others who do not have Visio won't be a able to see it.
