Is there a way to combine portrait and landscape slides in the same presentation?
I need to include financials that do no fit into the landscape version but do not want to switch between two separate presentations.
Thanks in advance.

Holy shit man, are you insane??!!?? I think if you try that, the computer automatically sends a signal at Microsoft world hq and soon after the guys in white coats will be coming by your office.

I am currently wearing a hazmat suit as I attempt this trick.
But as a numbers guy, my PP skills are limited.
Trying to go with the hyperlink thingy.

You need to put the pictures through a photo program like adobephoto, to rotate and trim them. Then "send" the photo to your PP files as a JPEG.
Sorry, got to run..

There is no presentation that can't be improved upon by totally exorcising powerpoint from the meeting room.
Just say no to putting your audience to sleep.
Good enough to show, but you'll end up with two presentations, main one with everything, one with just the odd slides, then in the main show create a hyperlink on a slide to the oddball one.
From the Powerpoint help file...
Portrait and landscape orientation in the same slide show:
If you want your presentation to include a series of slides that have a portrait orientation (taller than wide) but your presentation is set up for landscape orientation (wider than tall), you must first put the slides with the portrait orientation into a new presentation, create a link to the presentation, and then open that presentation during the slide show. If you want to create a link to an individual slide with a different orientation, open the presentation that includes the slide, and then move that slide alone into a new presentation.
Tried it out and it worked OK. It does need a couple of extra clicks to show but it works.
Have you considered making the financials a handout for the audience instead of having lots and lots of little type up on the screen?

Thanks, Tom K.
That is what I am going to do.
Bullet out the highlights and pass out the back-up as supplementary material.
