    Hello,

    I'm trying to copy slide from one presentation and paste it to another presentation.
    But it gives me following error:
    "Slides (unknown member) : Invalid request. Clipboard is empty or contains data which may not be pasted here."

    Please suggest me the solution.
    Thanks in advance

    Dear Amvyas, I'm sorry I don't have an answer, but I do have a further question. Can you not just cut and paste a single slide from one presentation into another? I don't get an error message as you did, but I lose formatting--sometimes it's the text, sometimes it's a picture. I also can't drag and drop a single slide without losing formatting. It seems like moving slides should be such a simple task, but it's not. I know I can drag the whole presentation over into another presentation and then just delete all the slides (!) I don't want, but that seems like a lot to do for just wanting to move one slide from one place into another.
