Default Auto Updating and Using Excel as Source

Hi peeps,

I'm building a presentation that gets updated with daily figures and hosted on a separate computer which displays it across the office.

What I'm hoping to do is to have a spreadsheet that I can update all the figures on, copy this to a folder on the other machines desktop, then the presentation itself detects an update or refreshes when it gets back to page one or something.... just so I don't have to mess on getting up from my desk to update it all...

The presentation has graphs and text slides so was also wondering if it would be better to design it all on excel and have some kind of vb code to change each of the tabs to a separate page in a presentation?

The data will show a total graph, then a page saying "this is what we have done" with the cash values and then the rest of the presentation would be a breakdown by team.

I am a bit of a noob with pp and vb...

cheers peeps!
