Is it possible to generate a powerpoint 97 macro that is fired when the presentation is opened ?

In word 97 one can add a private document_open() subroutine which runs macro code on document opening but I can't seem to find the same possibilities in powerpoint.

finally it works !

It turned out that in order for the add-in to work, I had to make the subroutines public ones.
as I initially copy-pasted the examples they didn't work.
Adding "public" solved my problem.

Thanx.
