    Creating a PPT presentation - Problems with Template / slide layout

    I am creating a presentation from within Excel, but I am having an issue with the Powerpoint template/slide layout.

    I have edited (but not renamed) three master slides within the template - Title, Title Only and Blank - to have additional placeholders and formatting.
    But I find that when the slides are created, they still use the default layouts of those slides. Furthermore, if I then look at the slidemaster in the created presentation, I see that the masterslides I edited are still there and have retained my changes, but there are now 3 additional masterslides at the end which are all named with a '1_' prefix (1_Blank Layout, 1_Title Only Layout etc.) and have the default layouts which are being used by the created slides.

    Anybody have any idea why this might be happening?

    Didn't even notice there was a separate forum!

    However.... this is still an Excel VBA query (unless the answer turns out to be a problem with the PPT template itself)

    Well I'm sure a mod will just move the thread if it's more appropriate in that forum.
