Example

This example creates a 3x3 table in a new presentation and inserts a four-pointed star into the first cell of the table.

With Presentations.Add
    With .Slides.Add(1, ppLayoutBlank)
        .Shapes.AddTable(3, 3).Select
        .Shapes(1).Table.Cell(1, 1).Shape _
            .AutoShapeType = msoShape4pointStar
    End With
End With

		

The following example creates a diagram and adds child nodes to the root mode. As each child is added, the root node displays the number of child nodes it has.

Sub CountChildNodes()

    Dim dgnNode As DiagramNode
    Dim shpDiagram As Shape
    Dim intNodes As Integer

    Set shpDiagram = ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes.AddDiagram _
        (Type:=msoDiagramRadial, Left:=10, Top:=15, _
        Width:=400, Height:=475)
    shpDiagram.DiagramNode.Children.AddNode

    Set dgnNode = shpDiagram.DiagramNode.Root

    For intNodes = 1 To 3
        dgnNode.Children.AddNode
        dgnNode.Shape.TextFrame.TextRange.Text = intNodes
    Next intNodes

End Sub
