powerpoint application.quit

My end show button uses the application.quit command to get out of powerpoint completely - but, it doesn't prompt to save changes to any presentaions already open. It doesn't save any changes and closes everything.
I need to prompt to save.

Same problem here and it seems like a bug to me. I'm using PowerPoint 2000 and the help file says...

"To avoid being prompted to save changes, use either the Save or SaveAs method to save all open presentations before calling the Quit method."

....but I don't get any questions at all, PowerPoint just quits without prompting or saving changes.

To be prompted to save before quitting, you may use this procedure and attach it to your 'end show' button.

Sub AskToSaveBeforeQuitting()
  Dim pres As Presentation
  For Each pres In Presentations
    If Not pres.Saved Then
      Select Case MsgBox("Save changes to " & pres.Name, vbYesNoCancel)
        Case vbYes: pres.Save
        Case vbCancel: Exit Sub
      End Select
    End If
  Next pres
End Sub
