I don't know if this is the right place to post this or not, but I know from past experience with Excel VBA problems I have had that this site is one of the best for finding solutions. I am being asked to right code for MS Project this time. I have run into a number of circumstances where I can't get code to work in MS Project the way it does in Excel. But my latest one I can't make a work-around for. I am trying to add a shape that isn't just a straight text box into a powerpoint presentation using the "Set" command so that I can change formatting, text, etc after placing it. If I run this code using a VBA window that I have opened in Powerpoint it works fine, but if I do from MS Project, I get a "Run-Time error '13': Type Mismatch". Under "Tools --> Reference" I have made sure that all the things checked in Powerpoint are also checked in MS Project. I am at my wit's end. Please help. Even if to point me into a different place to post this question if I am in the wrong place. Thanks in advance.
