Apps for Powerpoint - binding RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi

    I am keen on using Apps for Office to dynamically bind text to word documents and powerpoint slides.  I have just discovered the Apps for Office tooling and it seems to be a good solution for our business requirement.  Binding is currently only supported by Word (and Excel), but not Powerpoint.  The only useful API features supported by Powerpoint is read/write text.

    Is binding support in Powerpoint something that may be added in future?  Or are there other considerations that prevent this from being implemented?

  • Hi Brent,

    As you found, the supported clients of Binding object (JavaScript API for Office v1.1) are Access, Excel and Word at present.
