I'm making a presentation template for my team. What I need is a button on the slide that, when clicked, triggers the "Insert Object" command from the Insert menu. Powerpoint 2010 doesn't have the record macro option the way Excel does, so I can't just record the action and modify the VBA script from there, as I would in Excel.
This is only necessary because the built-in content placeholders don't offer that capability - even the most general Content placeholder only has buttons to insert tables, charts, smartart, images, clip art, and media/videos. But the users of the final presentation template will need a simple, user-friendly way to click and embed their auxiliary files, which are generally Excel files, in the placeholders.
So I need the VBA command corresponding to the "Insert Object" menu command so I can use it as a triggered script on my slide. I did some searches but the keywords are too general and I couldn't find what I needed. Or, if there's a better way to get the same result, I'd be interested to hear it.
Thanks for any help.
