Hi All,

I am currently automating a powerpoint we do - to save time populating the deck. This presentation will be replicated for 13 different markets - all of which have a different number of brands.

So I have a table with a layout like this:

Brands --->
Key metrics
|
|
V

My issue if how can I delete the columns in the powerpoint table (linked to excel) if there are now brands/values in rows =0.

I've managed to create a <acronym title="visual basic for applications" style="border-width: 0px 0px 1px; border-bottom-style: dotted; border-bottom-color: rgb(0, 0, 0); cursor: help; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); background-color: rgb(250, 250, 250);">VBA</acronym> which would delete these rows in excel however the columns remain in the table in powerpoint but just look empty.

Is this even possible?

Any help will be highly appreciated!

Thanks,
Rebecca

Will the fill handle fill 1, 2, 3?
Yes! Type 1 in a cell. Hold down Ctrl while you drag the fill handle.
