Question: How do I Set a PowerPoint Presentation object as an already existing and currently running PowerPoint Presentation on a Macintosh computer?

Background: I have a Windows-based Excel VBA script that interactively advances an Excel VBA-controlled PowerPoint Presentation that runs perfectly fine on a Windows machine, but returns a variety of run-time errors when attempting to run the script on a Mac. I can get the PowerPoint Presentation to load and run, but have not been able to "Set" my Presentation Object to the existing PowerPoint Presentation once I run a subsequent macro. I need it to run on a Mac. I need it to run from a subsequent and independent macro. I'm open to workarounds, but expect that the discussion of a potential workaround would be much more involved then simply being able to "Set" a PowerPoint Presentation object to a currently running presentation.

Thanks!

Formula for Yesterday
Name Manager, New Name. Yesterday =TODAY()-1. OK. Then, use =YESTERDAY in any cell. Tomorrow could be =TODAY()+1.
