VBA gurus I need your help!

I have an audio file in a powerpoint slide that I need to run by vba - does anyone know how to do it? Searching internet has proven fruitless, so don't know if it is possible?

I have 5 different triggers on the slide that can be completed in any order and I need the audio to run after the 5th trigger has been activated - I have all the code written and ready for this and it's all working - it's just the code that signals 'play' that I cannot find!

The sort of line i am looking for is -

ActivePresentation.Slides(24).Shapes("Recorded Sound").Play

but that obviously is too simple and doesn't work......

Appreciate any help

UPDATE :- I've found a work-around, I've duplicated the slide and move to next slide via VBA then have the audio automatically start in animation sequence - however if anyone does have an answer to this it will still help!
