Not sure if this will even be looked at but I have a complicated question for Power Point. My company is using PPT and Access for LMS training for employees. We use the Power Point as the presentation with voice over in it, sometimes small videos. There is a slide at the end that is a Macro enabled slide so that when you hover over the word "Finish" the video completes and the Access screen that had "take the quiz" button is now unlocked to take the quiz. I have found a way to disable the space bar and arrow keys and enter keys by putting the presentation in Kiosk mode under Slide Show> Set Up Slide Show > Show Type>Browsed at a Kiosk. This disables all of those choices to advance the presentation as well as the Finish slide (I don't want that), that I want them to be able to click on Finish to get out of the PPT.  What can I do at this point?

Hi Lisa. Of course your question will be looked at... but I don't know if I can deliver you an answer. Without seeing your presentation, I really can't tell what you've got going on there. I'll be completely honest, I haven't done anything with PowerPoint VBA automation in YEARS, so I'm a bit rusty. Not something I could answer off the top of my head without digging into the code.

3 different topics:

1) I am now nearing the last of the Access Developer courses I have (Developer 13). I thought Id get the next ones automatically. apparently, I was wrong. So  I am pleased to order Developer 14 (and the coming ones as well). You have my credit card details. Read More...

Hi Maurice. Thank you so much for the kind words. Let me address your items.

1. You are on the Waiting List for Developer 15. I haven't processed Waiting List orders yet. I'll be doing that today.

2. To be completely honest, I've never done any work with integrations between Excel and PowerPoint. What you're doing sounds incredibly interesting, but I would be completely in your position and have to Google stuff myself. I've got some books here on MS Office Programming, but none of them really go into too much detail about Excel/PP combos. I'd suggest looking on Amazon to see if someone has written something like this. Googling stuff can sometimes be a maze.

3. Thank you so much. I've got the master index listed here: Access Index. I've been wanting to spend some time linking the different topics in the Index to the exact courses that the item is contained in (and maybe even jump to the time index) but that would be a LOT of work, and I've switched from the old Theater to the new way of posting classes right on the web site. So... I don't know how I'd handle that. But, I'd love to see what you put together.

I know my Microsoft PowerPoint classes are in dire need of an update. The current ones are from 2003. There have been a LOT of changes in PowerPoint since then.

Show of hands... who here is still interested in learning more PowerPoint? Post a comment here.

Live Excel data in presentation Upload Images   Link

Greetings! We have a PowerPoint presentation that runs off a TV monitor that serves as an info "kiosk" for our warehouse personnel. I've created a nice presentation that runs on a continuous loop and I update slides frequently. Currently we embedded an excel slide that is updated when the presentation is opened and the links refreshed. There is a 3rd party software (DataPoint) that claims to show live information in real time. Is there a way to do that using VBA? Did you already cover this in a class or seminar? Please advise. Thanks! Read More...

PowerPoint is I think taken for granted until someone has a presentation to complete by a certain deadline. I think PowerPoint is probably the most underutilized application of the Microsoft Office family. I think that with the advent of the team leadership concept, PowerPoint will experience a renaissance of use, as Excel, for the most part, has become commotized as far as one being able to obtain free training online (from a number of sources). In my opinion, Access MVPs can still make money teaching Access online. In the final analysis, PowerPoint experts can make the most impact, as it is a very visible tool that if done right can affect multitudes of people.

If you read most of the recent literature regarding effective presentations, clipart is considered to be somewhat dated, and photographs are currently the flavor of the month.

I have a Powerpoint slide that I have placed a short video clip on. I have set all the Transitions, timings, size etc etc to my liking. All fine so far.
Now I have another 499 similar short video clips that I want to place on individual slides, however I don't want to have to set up all the attributes over and over again for every single slide. Read More...

Hi Ross,

How do you access clip organizer in powerpoint 2010. On your powerpoint 101 unit 7 you showed how to get it for powerpoint 2003

Reply from Richard Rost:

It's gone. In PPT 2007 and 2010 you click on INSERT > CLIPART and select from what's there. In Office 2013, Microsoft has actually gotten RID of the clipart. Yep, Office no longer ships with clipart. You click on INSERT > ONLINE PICTURES and then you can search Microsoft's site for images. Read More...

If you click on Office Button > Publish you should be able to publish those slides to any location (a folder on your hard drive or even a web server).
