in reply to Win32::OLE - Insert Object in PowerPoint

It sound like you're creating a link to the file, not embedding it. If you move/delete the png, does the ppt file created on your desktop pc show the filename icon?

looking at the documentation for AddOLEObject, you might try setting link to false, or 0 or MSO_BOOLEAN_FALSE, or whatever it is that PPT expects false to be.

    I tried setting the link to msoFalse but that had no effect. On my desktop system, I deleted the files that were inserted into the powerpoint file but when I opened the ppt file the inserted files were still displayed. Thanks anyway.
