    Macro to compile slides from several files (PPoint 2000)

    I need a macro to compile several slideshows in different files together. They are always named the same thing in the same folder locations. The number of slides will change along with the content in these slideshows.

    when I try to record a macro to Insert...Slides from files and collect these slides from their file folders to put them all together in one show the macro does not record any of my actions. Is there a way to do this?

    The instruction to insert slides from another file is

    ActivePresentation.Slides.InsertFromFile "path_and_filename", index

    where index is the number of the slide to insert the new slides after. See for a recent example <post#=432800>post 432800</post#>.
