Hi,

Does anybody know how to open a power point presentation from within microsoft access 97 in slide show view?

I have successfully managed to open the presentation using runapp with the following command C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\powerpnt.exe D:\working.pps. However, this opens the presentation in design view, as stated, i wish to open the presentation in slide show view.

Thanks in advance,
Nev.

Hello dobermannnn,

This is code for A2000 so I can't be sure it's OK for 97 but its worth a try.
You would need a reference to pp97 and obviously change the path & name to your own

Sub runPPPresentation()

    Dim ppApp As PowerPoint.Presentation

    Set ppApp = GetObject("C:\My Documents\pptPresentation.ppt")
    pr.SlideShowSettings.Run

End Sub
