    Office XP: Word to Powerpoint OLE problem (Office XP SP 1)

    This problem occurs with Word 2002 and not with Word 97 or Word 2000.
    And occurs only if PowerPoint is not running before the Word macro is run.

    See http://www.standards.com/OhMyWord/VBABugsFeatures.html for further
    details and a macro that will reproduce the problem, at least on my system.

    Can anybody reproduce this using Office XP SP 1?

    I give more details on the software I'm using at

    I just replaced the example with a better example which proves that the problem occurs under the following circumstances:

    1. There is not already a bookmark in the Word document covering the text to be copied.

    2. PowerPoint is not running.

    And, I noticed that the procedure sometimes needs to be run twice to see the problem, so I've modified the code to run twice.
