PPT2000: Sample Code to Reset the Builds on a Slide


When you run a slide show, Microsoft PowerPoint keeps track of the build progress for all slides in the presentation. When PowerPoint finishes building a slide, the builds (on that slide) are not run again unless you start the presentation again, or you loop through the slide show. If you want a slide to build more than one time during a slide show, write a macro to force PowerPoint to reset the builds. This article includes a sample Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications macro (Sub procedure) that resets the builds and displays the slide.
