My best luck has been to output to ODS RTF and then copy/paste into PowerPoint as from a Word document.

YMMV.

And, if you have the SAS BI Platform and the SAS Add-in for Microsoft Office, you can run Tasks and Wizards directlly in PowerPoint using the Add-in. If you just have Base SAS, however, then using ODS RTF is the solution that many of my students report that they use.

I've had the most success simply doing a shift-prnt screen to capture the screen, pasting the file into paint, cutting the portion of the screen that I wanted and, finally, pasting the result into powerpoint.

I've found that method the easiest to work with and later resize and manipulate if necessary.  Sometimes I'll use paint.net, rather than paint, as it has some features (such as controlling brightness and contrast) that aren't available in paint.
