Hello - I have a user that has developed a set of PowerPoint slides that get their data from Access tables. Up to now, they have updated the ?data tables? in the slides by just copying & pasting manually from the Access tables.

Now they would like me to link these slides back to the Access database so they can just "Refresh" them, like linked Access tables in Excel spreadsheets.

I know nothing about PowerPoint. Can somebody point me to an appropriate article?

(all MS Office 2010)

Thanks
