you could try something like


Sub h()
Dim PPApp As Object
Dim myp As Object
Set PPApp = CreateObject("PowerPoint.Application")
PPApp.Visible = True
Set myp = PPApp.Presentations.Open("c:\temp\myprez.ppt")
PPApp.Run ("myprez.ppt!Module1.t")
End Sub

where
myprez is your presentation name
Module1 is your module name in the presentation
t is the name of the public sub you're calling

hope this helps a bit
