  4. Move to next worksheet, we shall paste the data in the next slide
  5. Save and close the workbook


Sub CopyMultipleChartsFromExcelToPpt()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False

Dim obPptApp As PowerPoint.Application
Dim OpenPptDialogBox As Object
Dim CopiedRange As Object
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim SlideIndex As Integer

Set obPptApp = CreateObject("PowerPoint.Application")
Set OpenPptDialogBox = obPptApp.FileDialog(msoFileDialogOpen)

'Open the target PPT using dialog box
If OpenPptDialogBox.Show = -1 Then
obPptApp.Presentations.Open (OpenPptDialogBox.SelectedItems(1))
End If
SlideIndex = 1
'We are copying the charts from 3 separate worksheets, and pasting it in a 3 separate slides
For Each ws In ThisWorkbook.Sheets
    'Copy and paste excel range to ppt slide
    obPptApp.ActiveWindow.Presentation.Slides(SlideIndex).Shapes.PasteSpecial DataType:=ppPasteOLEObject, Link:=msoFalse
    SlideShapeCount = obPptApp.ActiveWindow.Presentation.Slides(SlideIndex).Shapes.Count
    'Change the position from left and top, height and width of copied range
    Set CopiedRange = obPptApp.ActiveWindow.Presentation.Slides(SlideIndex).Shapes(SlideShapeCount)
    CopiedRange.Height = 250
    CopiedRange.Width = 250
    CopiedRange.Left = 180
