Hello all,
I've tried a couple of hours to open an powerpoint worksheet embedded object sheet in order to modify its value from excel vba. I keep getting "type mismatch" at workbbok setting or error 438 when i set the excel workbook as object.object.( i have no problem with embedded charts, only with embedded worksheets..)

Any advice will be kindly received, thanks
VBA Code:
Private Sub initializare_Click()


Dim wb As Workbook
Dim ws As Worksheet

Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
Dim xlWB As Excel.Workbook

Dim ppt As PowerPoint.Application
Dim pres As PowerPoint.Presentation
Dim sld As PowerPoint.Slide
Dim shp As PowerPoint.shape
Dim cht As PowerPoint.Chart
Dim chtData As PowerPoint.ChartData
Dim cTable As Excel.ListObject

Set ppt = GetObject(, "PowerPoint.Application")

Set pres = ppt.Presentations(1)



Set sld = pres.Slides(21)


For Each shp In sld.Shapes

If shp.Type = msoEmbeddedOLEObject Then

MsgBox shp.Name
  
      shp.OLEFormat.DoVerb
'Here i keep getting the errors
      Set xlWB = shp.OLEFormat.Object.Object
      AppActivate Application.Caption
      Set xlApp = xlWB.Parent
      Set xlSH = xlApp.ActiveSheet
      MsgBox xlSH.Name
      xlWB.Close
  
  
End If

Next


End Sub
