I Have a Word VBA Macro That Fills a Table. I Need to Convert it to PowerPoint VBA

I have a Word VBA Macro That I use to Fill a Table in Word by Pulling Data from an Access Database.

I have the same need to fill a table in Powerpoint by pulling from an Access Table.

The Code is below, it works in WORD, but When I try to Execute it in PowerPoint, I get an error, shown below. Can Somebody please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

Option Explicit

Sub FillTable()
    Dim cn As New ADODB.Connection
    Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim strConn As String
    Dim Doca As Document
    Dim para As Paragraph
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim strDateText As String
    Dim tbl As Table
    Dim rw As Word.Row
    Set Doca = ActiveDocument
     Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    cn.Provider = "Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0"
    cn.Open "P:\KO Quality\KO Reporting\KO Weekly Reporting Data\Current Reporting Database\KO Quality Master 2008 Linked.accdb"

    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.Open "L2CAR_KOJ_Wood_Table", cn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdTable
    Set tbl = Doca.Tables.Add(Doca.Bookmarks("\EndOfDoc").Range, 1, 5)
    tbl.Cell(1, 1).Range.Text = "Activity Type"
    tbl.Cell(1, 2).Range.Text = "Number"
    tbl.Cell(1, 3).Range.Text = "Start Date"
    tbl.Cell(1, 4).Range.Text = "Status"
    tbl.Cell(1, 5).Range.Text = "Defect Code"

    Do Until rs.EOF
        Set rw = tbl.Rows.Add
        rw.Cells(1).Range.Text = rs.Fields("Activity Type").Value
        rw.Cells(2).Range.Text = rs.Fields("Number").Value
        rw.Cells(3).Range.Text = rs.Fields("Start Date").Value
        rw.Cells(4).Range.Text = rs.Fields("Status").Value
        rw.Cells(5).Range.Text = rs.Fields("Defect Code").Value

End Sub

You need to set a reference (in VBA, Tools/References) to the Microsoft Active Data Objects Library

Thank you. (That was your code by the way.)

I also need some clean up on the PowerPoint Object Model vs the Word Object Model, so I may need to ask an additional follow up question or two.

Thank you!

I thought that it might be. I have recently taken to using DocA for the Active document.
