  • You should be able to open the slide show files directly from PowerPoint and then you can use a routine such as this to extract the text.

        Private Sub ExtractSlideText()

            Dim item As Microsoft.Office.Interop.PowerPoint.Shape

            Dim textRange As String

            For Each item In slide.Shapes

                If item.HasTextFrame = Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue Then

                    If item.TextFrame.HasText = Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoTrue Then

                        textRange = item.TextFrame.TextRange.Text



                    End If

                End If


        End Sub

    Wag and they wag with you, Howl and they put you outside.
