Represents a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation.

Remarks

The Presentation object is a member of the Presentations collection. The Presentations collection contains all the Presentation objects that represent open presentations in PowerPoint.

The following examples describe how to:

  • Return a presentation that you specify by name or index number

  • Return the presentation in the active window

  • Return the presentation in any document window or slide show window you specify

Example

Use Presentations (index), where index is the presentation's name or index number, to return a single Presentation object. The name of the presentation is the file name, with or without the file name extension, and without the path. The following example adds a slide to the beginning of Sample Presentation.

Presentations("Sample Presentation").Slides.Add 1, 1

Note that if multiple presentations with the same name are open, the first presentation in the collection with the specified name is returned.

Use the ActivePresentationproperty to return the presentation in the active window. The following example saves the active presentation.

ActivePresentation.Save

Use the Presentationproperty to return the presentation that's in the specified document window or slide show window. The following example displays the name of the slide show running in slide show window one.

MsgBox SlideShowWindows(1).Presentation.Name
