LinkFormat Object

Office 2007
Contains properties and methods that apply to linked OLE objects, linked pictures, and IIRC media objects.


Use the LinkFormat property to return a LinkFormat object. The following example loops through all the shapes on all the slides in the active presentation and sets all linked Microsoft Excel worksheets to be updated manually.

Visual Basic for Applications
For Each sld In ActivePresentation.Slides
    For Each sh In sld.Shapes
        If sh.Type = msoLinkedOLEObject Then
            If sh.OLEFormat.ProgID = "Excel.Sheet" Then
                sh.LinkFormat.AutoUpdate = ppUpdateOptionManual
            End If
        End If
