    Global Toolbar in PowerPoint (Office 2003)

    Morning (or Afternoon)

    Just a quick question, if anyone can help. I have created a toolbar in a PowerPoint file and would like the toolbar to run when the user launches PowerPoint. In Word and Excel they have StartUp folders where templates can be stored and code runs on loading the Application (using AutoExec). Is there a location where a PowerPoint file can be stored?

    Thanks
    Jack

    PowerPoint does not have a startup folder. You must create an add-in (.ppa); the user will have to install it using Tools | Add-Ins...

    You will find instructions for creating a PowerPoint addin in <post#=359090>post 359090</post#>.

    I suspect you might have to use the addin to build your toolbar on the fly, as I don't think you can associate a toolbar with a template in the way Word does.
