    Edit, Paste Special, Unformatted Text in PPT (PPT 2k SR-2)

    In PowerPoint 2k-SR2, I need to make a macro to do EDIT, PASTE SPECIAL, then UNFORMATTED TEXT. It pretends to record, but nothing gets recorded. Tried both mouse and keyboard. Grrrrr. This worked fine in Word. Help!

    If you've not created a code module for this presentation before, you have to do that first before any recording will work.

    In your presentation, press Alt-F11 to open the VBE. Right click on VBAProject (My Pres.ppt), click Insert>Module.

    Switch back to the presentation. Now that you've got a code mod, try your recording again.

    There is no paste spacial in the PowerPoint object model! See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q222/7/21.ASP>Q222721</A> for a work around. --Sam
