    For i = 1 To .Count

        MsgBox "Tag #" &; i &; ": Name = " &; .Name(i)

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 that has 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
        Next

        If Not found Then
            slNum = .Parent.SlideIndex
            .Add "Name", "New Figures"
            .Add "Priority", "Unknown"
            MsgBox "Slide " &; slNum &; _
               " priority tag added: Unknown"
