I have an invitation in .ppt format. The first text area starts with Hello Name,. I would like to produce 500 .pdf documents, where each .pdf differ by the Name in hello Name. The first .pdf is for my friend John and it should be written Hello John,

I thought I could eventually use some bash script to modify either the .pdf or the .ppt (if I then manage to build all the .ppt automatically). I opened the .ppt and .pdf with a text editor but I fail to understand how I could modify the files.

How can I best achieve my goal?

    as far as a know This could not be done with only powepoint. but you can do it somewhere else. you could use Indesign (data merge) an ever word itself (mail merge) to do the job. but if you are sticked to PowerPoint. All you have to do is to depend over a third party plugin for PowerPoint something link datapoint or [PPTools ](pptools.com/merge/index.html) – hsawires Sep 20 '15 at 9:28
