Insert Flash Objects in PowerPoint 2010

It Seems strange that I am writing an article for PowerPoint as I always write something in .net or Silverlight but today my sister asked me that how she can insert a Flash File (swf) in PowerPoint as has to insert her company's Flash presentation into some other PowerPoint which she was making using PowerPoint 2010 so I thought to Share it.

Make sure that the Flash Player is installed on the computer. Then, follow these steps:

1. Open PowerPoint Presentation in which you want to insert the Flash Object, in normal view.

2. Add the Slide preferably blank slide in which you need to insert the Flash object.

3. Now Click File Menu, and then click Options.

4. Then Click on Customize Ribbon, and then check the check box labeled Developer in the right list, and then click OK.

5. Now on the Developer tab, click the More Controls button in the Controls group.

6. In the list of controls, click Shockwave Flash Object, click OK, and then drag on the slide to draw the control.

7. Resize the control by dragging the sizing handles.

8. Right-click the Shockwave Flash Object and then click Properties

9. On the Alphabetic tab, click the Movie property.

10. In the value column (the blank cell next to Movie), type the full drive path, including the file name (for example, C\:MyFile.swf) or uniform resource locator (URL) to the Flash file that you want to play.

And That's all we need to do, Now you can enjoy playing the file.
