    Insert Custom Properties? (PowerPoint 2002)

    Is there a way that I can insert custom properties into text boxes? I keep searching and 'thinking' there must be a way!

    Unlike Word, PowerPoint does not have fields, and neither does it have macros that are executed automatically when a presentation is opened (you'd need an add-in for that). You could put a command button on the first slide that inserts a custom document property into a text box and proceeds to the next slide:

    Private Sub cmdStart_Click()
    ActivePresentation.Slides(3).Shapes(2).TextFrame.T extRange.Text = _
    ActivePresentation.CustomDocumentProperties("MyPro perty")
    ActivePresentation.SlideShowWindow.View.GotoSlide Index:=2
    End Sub

    See attached example (make sure macro security is not set to High).

    Not the answer I was hoping for, but Thank-You Hans
