Hello,

Does anyone know how to open a powerpoint slide which has a password through the use of Excel macros? This is what I have so far but it doesn't seem to work the same way it does in Excel. Many thanks.

Dim PPTApp as PowerPoint.Application
Set PPTApp = New PowerPoint.Application
PPTApp.Visible = True
PPTApp.Presentations.Open _
Filename:="X:\PL Module\PL Charts\" & summaryppt.Value & ".ppt", _ ReadOnly:=msoTrue ', Password:="pass", writerespassword:="pass"

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

I think you will have to resort to SendKeys. Powerpoint's Open method doesn't have password arguments like Excel does.
