Hey all, sorry to post to the wrong board but i am new here and could not find a thread about PowerPoint.
With that being said I am trying to have a msgbox appear when the powerpoint file is opened, and then when the user decides to go to a next slide I want the same macro/msgbox to re-appear again, all the way throughout the slides. The code I have right now works to display the msgbox however I just dont know how to make it automatically run whenever the file is opened and from hoping to slide to slide.


This is my current code:


Option Explicit


Sub Pop_Up()


MsgBox "PowerPoint playback error. Verify that the necessarycodec for this media format is installed, and then try again.",vbOK + vbInformation
End Sub

You can teach Excel a new custom list. Type the list in cells, File, Options, Advanced, Edit Custom Lists, Import, OK

Hi Snelsonz,
add a module in your PPTM file and add a macro named: Sub OnSlideShowPageChange()
That macro will run when you run your PowerPoint and with every new sheet. There are a couple more "pre-named" macros that will run (you just have to add them to a module and add code to make them work), see e.g. this list: http://officeoneonline.com/vba/events_version.html
Hope that helps,
Koen
