Dear all,



I have a VBA code macro that I need to click each time I open the PowerPoint file.

I was wondering if there is a VBA code or option that will autorun my macro when i open the file.

Thank you,

Tom

It is possible in a pptm file though creating a ppam AQddIn might work better

There is a learning curve though and you should be able to use OfficeRibbonXEditor or something similar to add the custom XML part needed.
I have attached a pptm file with a very simple macro and the XML to run on Ribbon Load - NOTE IT will not work for a ppsm file that doesn't have a ribbon

runMe.pptm
