Table Object (PowerPoint)
Published: July 16, 2012
Use Shapes(index), where index is a number, to return a shape containing a table. Use the HasTable property to see if a shape contains a table. This example walks through the shapes on slide one, checks to see if each shape has a table, and then sets the mouse click action for each table shape to advance to the next slide.
With ActivePresentation.Slides(2).Shapes For i = 1 To .Count If .Item(i).HasTable Then .Item(i).ActionSettings(ppMouseClick) _ .Action = ppActionNextSlide End If Next End With
Use the Cell method of the Table object to access the contents of each cell. This example inserts the text "Cell 1" in the first cell of the table in shape five on slide three.
ActivePresentation.Slides(3).Shapes(5).Table _ .Cell(1, 1).Shape.TextFrame.TextRange _ .Text = "Cell 1"
Use the AddTable method to add a table to a slide. This example adds a 3x3 table on slide two in the active presentation.
