Arrow How to share macros in Powerpoint 2007??

Hi all,

I have a .ppt file with macro in it(not created by me). Basically its a simple macro that has a pop-up box and allows a user to choose a title for the header and footer and inserts them into the slides.

I have no problem running the macro via "view > macros > Run ..." from the original .ppt file.

However, the question is, how am I able to share this macro with other users running office 07?

I have managed to solve a similar issue with excel 2007 by saving the macro file as an Add-in, then import the Add-in to excel 2007, created a customize button for the macro under "Excel options > Customize > Choose commands from > Macros". It works nicely and each time I open a new excel document or an existing one, I can simply click on the button to run the macro which inserts the header and footer.

I like to do the same for powerpoint but after I've installed the Add-In, I can't see the macro listed under "Powerpoint Options > Customize > Choose commands from > Macros"

What can I do the share the macro with other users running office 2007?

Please advice.
