Seems ok.. is it throwing any errors at you?
You could try checking to see if the .shapes.count>0

Since you're running this from excel, have you tried Dim'ming the Shp as Powerpoint.Shape? Maybe you just used Shape and the excel.shape <> powerpoint.shape ?

Just a thought

Nothing in itself. Why do you think that there might be?

Bang on again Matt...

"Shp as Powerpoint.Shape"

I just had "Shape" as you say.

It says difficult or urgent...I have nothing else to do and to save me being bored I classify them as urgent! :)

Anyway. All done now! No more points today!

It takes more than that to answer if the question is incomplete.

Graham, yes I realise that. I tried to keep the question concise.
If I'd known the answer I probably could have written the question far better. Credit to Matt for second-guessing me.

My sincere apologies.

OK Darren, your graceful apologies certainly accepted on behalf of anyone who would have been confused.

For your guidance, if you get an error message, tell us what it is and where you get it. In your case, I guess it was: "Run time error 438, Property doesn't support this property or method".

In this case, the context would also have been useful: that you were using early binding to connect to PowerPoint in an Excel macro.  Correct that; it was essential.

I see that Matt had already answered several of  questions on your project, so was in a position to realise what was happening.
