'Convert PowerPoint'

(MS PowerPoint Conversion and Manipulation Utility)

 

Document Comparison and Document Conversion tools

'Convert PowerPoint' (Convert PPT) is a simple to use, yet sophisticated PowerPoint conversion utility.   If you need to convert thousands of files with a variety of file types located within many folders in a short period of time, this is the tool.  If you require complicated conversion jobs done on a regular basis the built in scheduler will make it easy.   'Convert PPT' can be run from the command line allowing for use in batch files as well as launching programmatically from other programs.

‘Convert PowerPoint’ Features

  • Convert PPT or Convert PPTX files to DOC, RTF, TXT, HTM, JPG, GIF, BMP, TIF, PNG, EMF, and WMF.
  • Command line (invisible at runtime) and GUI execution. Complete flexibility, complete power 
  • Scheduler included
  • Easy to use
  • Save and restore complex conversion configurations
  • Supports recursive subfolders
  • All parameters, including source and target files, conversion options etc. are persistent across runs of the program
  • Batch can be stopped midway and resumed at a later time
  • Can be adapted for all languages

In addition to being a PPT converter, many other special processes have been included. They are:

  • (DOC, RTF, HTM and TXT) Append (Concatenate) files. Original file(s) contents is placed at the end of the Target file.

  • (DOC, RTF, HTM and TXT) Remove Empty Lines

  • (DOC, RTF, HTM and TXT) Search and Replace a String

  • Launch (Run) a program

Repeat complex conversion tasks simply by restoring prior 'Conversion Jobs'.  A conversion job consists of all 'Conversion Tasks' that you specify to be done.  Each task can be detailed one at a time with Convert PowerPoint’s friendly user interface.  This makes your future convert PowerPoint jobs a mindless endeavor.

‘Convert PowerPoint’ Command Line

Convert PPT can be run without a user interface with command line arguments much like in the good old DOS days.  Alternatively you can initiate command line execution by going to the operating systems 'command prompt' or within Windows at the START-RUN menu and typing it in there.  Lastly, the command line interface can be used from Batch files (files with *.BAT extension). 

 There are two approaches to using the command line:

     A)  Specify a 'Conversion Job' that was built using the graphical user interface (GUI)

     B)   Specify a 'Conversion Task' in detail

 

 Specifying a 'Conversion Job' is very easy, as you only need to tell Convert PPT’ where to find the associated *.SII 'Conversion Job' file.  All the details associated with this task are executed in one fell swoop.  Specifying a 'Conversion Task' is much more tedious, but does not require the prior creation of a 'Conversion Job' file.  Each approach is discussed in more detail below.

IMPORTANT: To use the command line successfully the operating system will need to know where exactly the application is located. Otherwise, you'll see the following error:

"ConvertPPT.EXE" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

We suggest you do one of the following:

A)    Set the path in your operating system’s environment variables to the installation location of ConvertPPT.EXE. See your operating system’s help for setting the path.

B)    Create a batch file (a text file whose file name ends in .bat) that uses the fully qualified path of ConvertPPT.EXE.

For example the following is a typical batch file:

"C:\Program Files\Softinterface, Inc\Convert PowerPoint\ConvertPPT.EXE" /J "C:\MyJobs\SlideConversions.SII"

Specifying a 'Conversion Job'

The syntax for specifying a 'Conversion Job'  is:

     ConvertPPT /J{ConversionJobFile}  [/V] [/L{LogFile}] [/B{LogToJobFile}]

Items above enclosed in square brackets “[ ]” are optional, all other ‘switches’ are required.  Therefore /J should always be specified on the command line.

Example:
To run the 'Conversion Job' specified by the "C:\MyJobs\ApplesOranges.SII" type the following in at the 'Command Prompt':

    ConvertPPT /J"C:\MyJobs\ApplesOranges.SII"

You can include or exclude spaces between switches and parameters.  For example,  "/C6" is the same as "/C  6".  For long file names you may be required to use double quotes.  For example /J"C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyDoc.DOC".

Specifying a 'Conversion Task'

The syntax for the command line for specifying a conversion task is:

     ConvertPPT /S{Original File(s)} /T{Target File(s)} /C# [/Y#] [/Z#] [/E] [/G]  [/V] [/R] [/F#] [/L{LogFile}] [/B{LogToJobFile}]  

Items above enclosed in square brackets "[ ]" are optional, all other 'switches' are required. Therefore /S, /T, /C# should always be specified on the command line. There is one exception, however, and that is when /G (Save to original folder) is specified, the /T switch is not necessary.

You can include or exclude spaces between switches and parameters. For example, "/C6" is the same as "/C 6". For long file names you may be required to use double quotes. For example /S"C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyPresentation.PPT".

/S{Original File(s)} is used to specify which files to convert. You can specify a single file, or in some cases a whole set of files using the wildcard syntax (i.e. "C:\MyFiles\*.PPT"). /T{Target files} should always be different from /S{Original File(s)}.

Note: Any file type that MS PowerPoint can open is a valid original file /S{Original File} type.

/T{Target File(s)} is used to specify where to save the converted file(s) to. You can specify a single file, or in some cases a whole set of files using the wildcard syntax (i.e. "C:\MyFiles\*.DOC"). /T{Target files} should always be different from /S{Original File(s)}.

[/C#] tells 'Convert PowerPoint' what the file type to convert the /T{Target File(s)} files to. For all constants see File Type Constants.

[/Y#] Start converting FROM this slide number.  If /Y and /Z are not specified then CPPT defaults to conversion of all slides.

[/Z#] Convert up TO and including this slide number.  If /Y and /Z are not specified then CPPT defaults to conversion of all slides.

[/E] Use this switch to create a new file for Every slide converted.  If not specified a single file will be created containing all.

[/G] Save files to their original folders. Use this instead of /T to place the converted files in the same folder as the original file. Cannot be used when converting a single, specified file from within a folder. Use the /T switch instead.

[/V] Verbose mode. Specify this switch to display a message box indicating how the conversion went. See also /L

[/R] Seek out and do all files found in the sub-folders specified in the /S switch. Recursive subdirectories. You may add this switch if you are processing whole directories of files. See /S, /T and /G for more details on selecting whole directories to be converted.

[/F#] File type of the Original file(s).  Used for special processing only (concatenation).  The original file(s) path are specified with the /S switch. This switch specifies the file type of these file(s).

[/L{LogFile}] Log file path and name (i.e. d:\mylogs\WCE.LOG) If this switch is specified a log file with the given path and name will be created and the results of the conversion will be written to it. See also /V

[/B{LogToJobFile}] Save the Log file as a 'Conversion Job' ONLY IF ERRORS OCCURRED. This is useful if the files that had problems can be done at a later time, or with a different method. /B is different from /L, since the file generated with /B will not include extraneous comments not allowed in a 'Conversion Job' file. Save as a .SII file type so it can be loaded as a job.
