powerpoint 2007 macro error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to create a simple macro in powerpoint 2007 to save the active presentation as a pdf. I tried the example on the MS site here:

    Public Sub ExportAsFixedFormat_Example() 
       ActivePresentation.ExportAsFixedFormat "C:\Users\username\Documents\test.pdf", ppFixedFormatTypePDF, ppFixedFormatIntentScreen, msoCTrue, ppPrintHandoutHorizontalFirst, ppPrintOutputBuildSlides, msoFalse, , , , False, False, False, False, False 
    End Sub

    and I keep getting this error:

    run-time error '-2147467259 (80004005)':
    Method ExportAsFixedFormat of object '_Presentation' failed

    What does this mean & how can I fix it? Thanks!

  • Try changing ppPrintOutputBuildSlides to ppPrintOutputSlides
