VBA - Powerpoint create new presentation and then copy slides from another presentation

Hi guys,

I'm working on creating a tool for powerpoint where I need to create a new PPT and then paste slides ind from a PTT from a specific location.

But i'm having some issues with it, for some reason it simply just paste in the the slides into the first presentation that is open.

please advise.

this is the code I'm using:

Sub pre()

    Dim myPresentation As Presentation

    'Set myPresentation = Presentations.Add(WithWindow:=msoFalse) 'hidden
    Set myPresentation = Presentations.Add(WithWindow:=msoTrue) 'visible

        Call Module1.main

End Sub

Sub main() 

Dim objPresentation As Presentation
Dim i As Integer

'open the target presentation
Set objPresentation = Presentations.Open("c:\temp\Test import2.pptx")
For i = 1 To objPresentation.Slides.Count
    objPresentation.Slides.Item(i).Copy
    Presentations.Item(1).Slides.Paste
Next i
objPresentation.Close

End Sub

Open in new window

Or simply
 sTemplate = "c:\temp\Test import2.pptx"

    Set myPresentation = Presentations.Open(sTemplate, False, True, True)
