Interactive worksheet in powerpoint

  • Hello,

    I know that I can place a text box in a powerpoint presentation and the user can enter data. I could link this object to an embeded worksheet. However there are 20 or more input cells.

    I could open Excel from powerpoint, but then I have to format the sheet to look like the presentation (I use the same model for many clients).

    I really would like to be able to have an interactive worksheet that the presenter can change a number and the graph etc would change. I am happy to write VBA to refresh/recalc the object, although would prefer the full functionality of the Excel worksheet in the presentation.

    Is this possible?

    Howdy. I have not done this. However, there is a web site that has many programming links for PPT, that looks like it might point you in the right direction. Powerpoint FAQ. Scroll about half way down to see the programming issues.

    Old, slow, and confused - but at least I'm inconsistent!
