How to access SharePoint files ( with VBA from PowerPoint? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I try to add pictures from a sharepoint url ( to a slide in PowerPoint with this command:

    Set shp = sld.Shapes.AddPicture(...)

    When the code gets to this command, an authentication window opens and asks for user credentials. Is it possible to use the user credentials, which are used in PowerPoint already for the authentication?

  • Hi iMoe,

    You could use user credentials that are already used for authentication in PowerPoint to authenticate.

    If the authentication does not pass, you need to use the credentials for SharePoint.
