Calling Powerpoint Macro from Word Macro
Posted on 2009-04-08
I have developed a macro in word to search specific words for multiple word documents and generate a report in word.
Since this tool works only with .doc and .docx files.
To scan the .ppt files for the same i need to convert them to word first.
I wrote a macro in powerpoint to extract text from ppt and store it in word, which can be later scanned using my previous tool
I need to call this powerpoint macro from my word doc, each time the button in the word doc is pressed. How can this be done ?
Since i wont be shipping the powerpoint with my tool which is word, can i insert it as object in word doc tool and call macro from it ? if yes how ?
