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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
