View.PasteSpecial (PowerPoint)

Pastes the current contents of the Clipboard into the view represented by the View object.

An error occurs if there is no data on the Clipboard when the PasteSpecial method is called. Valid views for the PasteSpecial method are the same as those for the Paste method. If the data type can't be pasted into the view (for example, if you try to paste a picture into Slide Sorter View), an error occurs. The DataType parameter can be one of these PpPasteDataType constants

Syntax : expression.PasteSpecial (DataType, DisplayAsIcon, IconFileName, IconIndex, IconLabel, Link)

ActiveWindow.View.PasteSpecial

Arguments

The following arguments are optional

DataType (PpPasteDataType) - A format for the Clipboard contents when they're inserted into the document. The default value varies, depending on the contents in the Clipboard. An error occurs if the specified data type in the DataType argument is not supported by the clipboard contents.

Here you can find possible values for PpPasteDataType.

DisplayAsIcon (Office.MsoTriState) - msoTrue to display the embedded object (or link) as an icon.

IconFileName (String) - If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoTrue, this argument is the path and file name for the file in which the icon to be displayed is stored. If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoFalse, this argument is ignored.

IconIndex (Long) - If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoTrue, this argument is a number that corresponds to the icon you want to use in the program file specified by IconFilename. Icons appear in the Change Icon dialog box, accessed from the Insert tab (click Object, select Display as icon, click Change Icon): 0 (zero) corresponds to the first icon, 1 corresponds to the second icon. If this argument is omitted, the first (default) icon is used. If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoFalse, this argument is ignored. If IconIndex is outside the valid range, the default icon (index 0) is used.

IconLabel (String) - If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoTrue, this argument is the text that appears below the icon. If this label is missing, Microsoft PowerPoint generates an icon label based on the Clipboard contents. If DisplayAsIcon is set to msoFalse, this argument is ignored.

Link (Office.MsoTriState) - Determines whether to create a link to the source file of the Clipboard contents. An error occurs if the Clipboard contents do not support a link.
