Run VBA code when opening every presentation in Powerpoint 2016 mac version

I need to run some VBA scripts when opening each presentation in powerpoint, Is there any way to  do that.
Is there any callback methods available for that in powerpoint 2016 mac version.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

As far as I know, PowerPoint Events was not implemented in VBA for PowerPoint 2016 of the Mac.

Rgonzo1971 is right. Application events are not yet supported in PowerPoint:mac 2016. I have successfully used another mechanism in PowerPoint:Mac though called ribbon command repurposing. I've only done this for FileSave and not FileOpen but perhaps this method could be used:

Points awarded for the answer that there is no callback available in PowerPoint:mac VBA for application level events required for the requested functionality.
