Hello experts,

I have a question in Powerpoint API. I am opening a powerpoint using COM programming as follows

    CComPtr<PowerPoint::Presentations> presentations;
/* pptApplication is already set to valid pointer */
hr = pptApplication->get_Presentations(&presentations);

    CComPtr<PowerPoint::_Presentation> thePresentation;
    hr = presentations->Open((BSTR)szFileName, msoTrue, msoFalse, msoTrue, &thePresentation);
/* thePresentation is returned as NULL for some test case*/
 BSTR szName;
    hr = thePresentation->get_Name(&szName);
/* szName is returned as NULL  for some test case */

I would like to know where I can get the documentation of these APIs. I have googled, but it did not get me any usefule links.I want to know if it is valid for these APIs to return NULL values under some conditions,which means I would need to check the validity of the pointers before using them.

Thanks and Regards,
Ramanan
