PasteSpecial ppPasteEnhancedMetafile not working in 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have developed a macro enabled Excel based application in MS-Office 2007 version. In this application, I am trying to copy a chart as an image from Excel and paste the same as an image on a PowerPoint slide. The code used to work in MS-Office 2007. But when the same application is run on MS-Office 2010, it is giving error on the line "With Slide(n).Shapes.PasteSpecial(ppPasteEnhancedMetafile) ..... End With". Checked on lot of forums. Did not get a solution for this.

    Has someone been able to resolve this issue? If yes, could you please share the solution?

    Thanks in advance,
