PowerPoint 2007 Automation

Recommended Posts

Senten

Hello,

i need to automate a MS Powerpoint presentation.

What i want to do is....

1. simply open an existing presentation

$obj = ObjCreate("PowerPoint.Application")
$PresInterface = $obj.Presentations
$objPres = $PresInterface.Open($filepath)

2. find a chart by its name (i.e. diagram1)

3. update the data of the diagram.

Later i would like to be able to stop a running slideshow to update its content and then restart or resume it.

I tried to get into this by searching the msdn reference but i just wasn't able to find the information i need.
