I have a macro that does what I want but need to streamline it so if I need to change, for example the width, I only want to change it in one spot versus multiple times.

Partial code:
PPApp.ActiveWindow.View.GotoSlide (26)
Set PPSlide = PPApp.ActiveWindow.View.Slide
        Sheets("Connects_BO").Select
        LockAspectRatio = False
        ActiveSheet.Range(stBO).Copy
         PPSlide.Shapes.PasteSpecial(DataType:=ppPasteEnhancedMetafile).Select
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight 1, False
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth 1, False
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Width = 713
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Height = 320#
    ' Realign:
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Top = 70
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Left = 4
       
PPApp.ActiveWindow.View.GotoSlide (27)
Set PPSlide = PPApp.ActiveWindow.View.Slide
        Sheets("Hours_BO").Select
        LockAspectRatio = False
        ActiveSheet.Range(stBO).Copy
         PPSlide.Shapes.PasteSpecial(DataType:=ppPasteEnhancedMetafile).Select
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight 1, False
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth 1, False
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Width = 713
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Height = 320#
    ' Realign:
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Top = 70
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Left = 4
       
PPApp.ActiveWindow.View.GotoSlide (28)
Set PPSlide = PPApp.ActiveWindow.View.Slide
        Sheets("Sat_BO").Select
        LockAspectRatio = False
        ActiveSheet.Range(stBO).Copy
         PPSlide.Shapes.PasteSpecial(DataType:=ppPasteEnhancedMetafile).Select
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleHeight 1, False
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.ScaleWidth 1, False
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Width = 713
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Height = 320#
    ' Realign:
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Top = 70
        PPApp.ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange.Left = 4
