Is it possible to Update Powerpoint slides from the Sharepoint slide-library using Macros when its in read-only mode?

As Wendy Li informed that PPT ask you to update from slide library automatically. But this happens only if the slides are saved in your system(in read write mode). Is it possible to run the updates automatically on Read-only slides as well.

Thanks.

Old:

Currently I'm executing the task manualy by using the Check for updates option. But I'm willing to develop a macro code which can be executed when the slide is open and automatically replaces the slides with the latest one from the Slide-Library. Any links to pre-existing code will be helpful. Thanks.

Hi SamGoe,

According to your description, my understanding is that you want to update the PoerPoint slide from SharePoint 2010 slide library automatically.

It seems to be not necessary to use Macros. SharePoint provides an OOB way to notify you to check for update to the slide library slides when you open the presentation. PowerPoint does this because you selected the option Tell me when this slide changes when you copied the slides from the library.

More information, please refer to the link below:

I hope this helps.

Thanks,

Wendy

Hello Wendy Li. Thanks for the information you have provided. As you said the PPT file asks me to update from slide library automatically when I open, but this happens only if the slides are saved in my system(in read write mode). Is it possible to run the updates automatically on Read-only slides as well. When I download the slide from a link it comes in Read only mode and I have to run the updates manually in this scenario. Is there a way I can call the OOB features using macro? Even that will work for me.

Thanks a lot.
