Hi,

With VBA it should be
Sub Macro()
For Each sld In ActivePresentation.Slides
    With sld.HeadersFooters
        .SlideNumber.Visible = msoTrue
    End With
Next
End Sub

Open in new window

Rgonzo's code will add numbers to all existing slides.

However if you mean set the default for NEW slides to numbered that is a different matter.

Don't think it's possible in vba except by using executeMso and sendkeys which may not be reliable

Sub numl()
Dim osld As Slide
Dim ocust As CustomLayout
ActiveWindow.Selection.Unselect ' ensure no text selected
Set ocust = ActivePresentation.SlideMaster.CustomLayouts(2)
Set osld = ActivePresentation.Slides.AddSlide(1, ocust)
If Not osld.HeadersFooters.SlideNumber.Visible Then ' check if already set to show all
PowerPoint.Application.CommandBars.ExecuteMso ("HeaderFooterInsert")
SendKeys ("%N")
SendKeys ("%Y")
SendKeys ("ESC")
End If
osld.Delete
End Sub
