I am creating a PowerPoint presentation when I got this server application error that says the server application source file or item cannot be found or returned an unknown error. It suggested me to reinstall the server application.

I get this error when I was inserting PDF object to one of my PowerPoint slides. What should I do?

Is there another way of inserting PDF objects to PowerPoint?

Please send some help.

 

The server application, source file, or item can't be found, or returned an unknown error, You may need to reinstall the server application.

How do I insert PDF objects to Powerpoint slides?

The problem is with how you are copying the text in the pdf document and pasting in the powerpoint document. Use the following procedure:

  • Select the text that you will want to include in the powerpoint presentation from the pdf file and copy it. Make sure that you copy reasonable text that can fit in the text box of the powerpoint slide, because if you copy so much text that a powerpoint slide cannot accommodate then you will get an error as the one you are getting.
  • When pasting in the powerpoint slide, make sure that you paste the text inside the textbox. You can note where you are pasting the text by checking the position of the blinking cursor.

When you do it that way, it should work unless your computer has some other problem.
