Goodmorning,

I need to create a Macro in my Excel Sheet, which automatically updates a graph on a PowerPoint Slide.
Both Files already exist and I just need to tell two kinds of things: "copy this from excel and paste it here on the slide" and "copy this from excel, open this graph inputs and paste it here"

I put on VBA the Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Object Library, but still I cannot access the Slide.

Can someone help? Am I missing something?
 

Excel Facts

Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

No need to use macros. A simple copy past will do the trick.

1. Copy the cell/Table/Chart in Excel
2. Go to your Power Point Presentation
3. Go to Past Options -> Paste Special

From now on every time you change something in your Excel it will automatically change in your presentation. For me, the main drawback of this technic is that you can't do any formatting in the cell you paste. If you need to change something it has to be done in the Excel file.
