Welcome to PressF1.

Copy and paste? I don't know of any other way to do it... :p

PC World mentioned a way to do it, if you create a Word document in Outline view and use headings for all the text, then rename it to .ppt, PowerPoint will convert it. (IIRC)

Open up PowerPoint and then use the round (globe) Menu button and select "New". Use the drop-down arrow to select the file type of "All Outlines" as this includes Word documents. Browse to your Word document and then select that and click "Open".

Just going from the experiment I did with a Word document, the resulting PowerPoint slides may need some serious format tweaking afterward.

save it as a format that powerpoint can import e.g .pdf
