I'm used to VBA in Access.  I can pop code into the OnLoad event of a form or whatever.
In PowerPoint I can only seem create a module which is stand-alone. (I've only been using PP for a few hours)

Where do I put the code Jamie?
Ah - sorry Eirman. Assumption is a bad habit!

Check out our article if you've never used VBA before:

I'm working with a new clean file.
I tried the Alt+F8 and it worked ...... once. When I save .... close .... open it doesn't work.

Perhaps something simpler, after all, it only needs a single click to get things started.
That's expected behaviour.

When you insert VBA code into a Microsoft Office file it must be saved using one of the macro-enabled formats. For example, in PowerPoint you could use .pptm. If you try to use the default .pptx extension then the VBA project is removed before the file is saved. You could develop your presentation in "macro mode" and then save it as a .pptx when you've finished.

So the VBA code works :-)
