It was possible prior to Director version MX. Director had the "Import Xtra for PowerPoint" that allowed to import PowerPoint presentations up to version 4. It was a tool Xtra available under Xtras > Import PowerPoint File menu. Now it's all outdated.
You can try to import it as an ActiveX control though.
Thanks for the info. How would I go about importing it as an ActiveX control? I went to Insert>Control>ActiveX & got a list of control descriptions. Also, importing doesn't give the option for ActiveX, so I'm stumped. Thanks in advance for your help!

You can use OpenOffice.org to export a PP presentation as a .swf, reducing
the problem to one of controlling a Flash sprite. That way you wouldn't need
any PP ActiveX control on the end user's machine.
Thanks for all your help! I'll give your suggestions a try.
The xxxx :-(( thing is though that in the manual of mx2004 still is written that director can import powerpoint files.
could i use director 8.5, import director 8.5 and then import the director 8.5 movie into director mx 2004?
I hope they restore this import in the next version, as it is handy to create elearning content.
