Using Smart Tags

Smart Tags help you integrate actions typically performed in other programs directly in PowerPoint. For example, you can insert a financial symbol to get a stock quote, add a person's name and address in a presentation to the contacts list in Microsoft Outlook, or copy and paste information with added control.
