    restarting slide numbering (Office XP)

    I have different sections in my slide show. How can I restart slide numbering at each section, a bit like in Word with a section break.

    PowerPoint doesn't support restarting numbering within a presentation.
    You can number the slides manually, or you can create a separate presentation for each section, and link from one to the other.

    URL corrected by HansV (there was a space in it, making it invalid)

    I wrote a slide numbering macro for pptfaq. It's here pptfaq.com/FAQ00853.htm
    To get what you want you would need to use a title layout alide as a divider and change the code slightly.

    CHANGE
    If strTask = vbNo And ActivePresentation.Slides(n).Layout = ppLayoutTitle Then
    ' don't number the slide but increment the slide number
    ' comment the following line out if you want title slides to be skipped
    ' ie, not to be included in numbering sequence and not numbered
    lNum = lNum + 1
    TO

    If strTask = vbNo And ActivePresentation.Slides(n).Layout = ppLayoutTitle Then
    ' don't number the slide but reset the slide number
    ' comment the following line out if you want title slides to be skipped
    ' ie, not to be included in numbering sequence and not numbered
    <font color=red> lNum = 1</font color=red>
