access 2007 feed into PPT 2007

I've created an access 2007 dB of organizational information. I also created a PowerPoint 2007 template visually showing an organizational chart.  I want to be able to update the PPT when I update the dB. Is there any easy way to do do this w/o alot of code?

No, not directly...

Again the utility to import an Excel Outline and have PP generate a Org Chart is basically a one shot "Import", not a link.
See here for some info:

But to be sure, wait a while for a Powerpoint Expert to chime in.

As you probably know, this is commonly done with Excel.
But in that case excel is used to build an "Outline" of the structure, and Powerpoint then "interprets" this outline and crates the associated OrgChart.
Note that this is basically a one shot deal (Import), ...not a "link"

Also note that you data must be in a *very* specif format in order for powerpoint to correctly interpret it into an org chart.

Another thing worth mentioning is that Excel 2007 and newer can create Org Charts directly with this same data structure
