Using VS2005/VB.Net, Office 2000
I'm just looking for some direction right now. I need to create a Slide Show that has some graphs and other data driven slides. The slides will have to be updated w/ current data every 5 minutes. I'll also need to create the functionality for users to add or delete slides from the show.
I've created a vb.net app that will open up and play a slideshow, but obviously I need more functionality than that. And Office 2000 is what I have to work with. Wish I could use 2007, but it is what it is. I have a ton of questions, but to start with how should I set this up? Should I use VB.Net to connect to and manipulate the Slide Show in PowerPoint or should I try to create a slide show in VB.Net and not worry about PowerPoint?
