This example displays the name and value for each tag associated with slide one in the active presentation.

With Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Tags
    For i = 1 To .Count
        MsgBox "Tag #" & i & ": Name = " & .Name(i)
        MsgBox "Tag #" & i & ": Value = " & .Value(i)
End With

This example searches through the tags for each slide in the active presentation. If there's a tag named "PRIORITY," a message box displays the tag value. If there isn't a tag named "PRIORITY," the example adds this tag with the value "Unknown."

For Each s In Application.ActivePresentation.Slides
    With s.Tags
        found = False
        For i = 1 To .Count
            If .Name(i) = "PRIORITY" Then
                found = True
                slNum = .Parent.SlideIndex
                MsgBox "Slide " & slNum & " priority: " & .Value(i)
            End If
        If Not found Then
            slNum = .Parent.SlideIndex
            .Add "Name", "New Figures"
            .Add "Priority", "Unknown"
            MsgBox "Slide " & slNum & _
               " priority tag added: Unknown"
        End If
    End With
