I'm trying to get a Macro into a Power Point presenation. I have resaved it as a Macro Enabled Power Point (PPTM) but I can't seem to create the macro.

I'm sure it is something simple, as I have macros in other Power Points.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Are you getting some sort of error?

When I go to the Developer/Macro ribbon the "Create" button is disabled. And there doesn't appear to be a "Record" option in Power Point.

Powerpoint has not had the capability to record macros since Office 2003:

See this link for details from microsoft:

Your only option for Powerpoint is to write the macro yourself using VBA Editor.

If you have access to Office 2003 you can record macros there, and copy that code into later versions of office.

As the others said you really will have to write the macro (The record option in 2003 was fairly useless anyway)

The create button is grey because you haven't named the macro.
