How to Create a Simple PowerPoint Report

    This tutorial illustrates the basics of creating PowerPoint reports. It is presumed that you are familiar with common NPrinting procedures.

    Images of three QlikView objects and a QlikView variable will be embedded in a PowerPoint report.

    Open an existing NPrinting document or a new one. We will use a sample QlikView document, SalesDemo.qvw, for this tutorial. It is part of the NPrinting Training Materials that you need to download and expand into C:\NPrintingTraining\ so that the the relative path structure continues to be valid. Establish a connection to it (see: How do I connect to my QlikView documents?).
