PowerPoint Custom Properties - how can I set defaults

Hi there

Can someone please tell me how I set the Department document property in PowerPoint so that it is the default for all presentations.
(ie Prepare > Properties > Document Properties > Custom > Department

Secondly can it be done through VBA, ie I prompt a user to enter their department and it stores it as the default?

It would help if you told us which version of MSOffice you are using.
In any case, the easiest way to accomplish this is to open the Slide mask and have the user replace the word Department with the correct department (this works in all versions, but how to open the Slide Mask may differ from one version to the next).

I don't think there's any way to have a default custom property. You might be able to write an addin that added the property to each new presentation.
