After installing this library you need to make an file and copy paste the following code which is shown below



import sys
import argparse
import os
import fnmatch
import win32com

import tkinter as Tkinter
from tkFileDialog import *

from win32com.client import Dispatch

def main(directory):
    """Publish Powerpoints to PDFs

    This program looks for any Excel files in its subdirectories. It reads them
    expecting each row to have a format of (PptFile, PageRange, PDFOutput,
    OutputDirectory). Then assuming that each Powerpoint file is in the same
    folder as the Excel file, it will print a PDF of that range of slides from
    the Powerpoint to the output folder with the PDFOutput name specified.
    files = []
    excel_dispatch = Dispatch('Excel.Application')
    ppt_dispatch = Dispatch('Powerpoint.Application')
    for root, dirnames, filenames in os.walk(directory):
        # [!~] in filter is for Windows temporary files
        for filename in fnmatch.filter(filenames, '[!~]*.xls*'):
            print('Reading data from {}'.format(filename))
            files.append(read_excel_file(os.path.join(root, filename),

        for slide in list(range(1, ppt.Slides.Count + 1))[::-1]:

        row += 1
    return data
