    POWERPOINT update links to Excel

    Hi there,

    Possibly not the correct place to pose this question as strictly its PowerPoint VBA, but I'm hoping the issue is simple enough that someone here might be able to help.

    I have an Excel spreadsheet that produces and updates graphs. These are copied into a PowerPoint that is sent to a client. When they receive the Excel + Powerpoint the links are broken because they reference directories on my PC. I am trying to automatically edit these links with VBA before I send the PowerPoint so that they reference a non-existent directory on my end, but accurately reflect the directory on the client end.

    Currently the script I have is causing a Run-time error -2147188160, which I understand from this link https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...ntation-call-i requires a piece of additional VBA to ensure the application is visible (the PowerPoint would be running and visible when the script to change the links is run, but anyway). I've tried to add the recommended code, but still get the Run-time error -2147188160 error.

    I have the following references running:
    • Visual Basic for Applications
    • Microsoft PowerPoint 16.0 Object Library
    • OLE Automation
    • Microsoft Office 16.0 Object Library
    • Microsoft Excel 16.0 Object Library
    • AutoEvents
    • FM20.dll

    Any and all help greatly appreciated.

    You're right about the location - I've moved it to the correct sub-forum.

    Moving a question to this sub-forum is tantamount to chucking it in the bin.

    No, it isn't. It's the right place for it, but we hardly ever get questions about PowerPoint - I can't remember the last time - and I suspect that nobody feels au fait enough with the topic to be able to offer you support. That's the way it goes sometimes - sorry.

    As a gesture of goodwill, I'll move it to the Excel VBA forum to see if it gets a bite there.
