This article provides a sample Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications macro (Sub procedure) that updates the links inside a Microsoft Excel Chart object on a Microsoft PowerPoint slide.


Microsoft provides programming examples for illustration only, without warranty either expressed or implied. This includes, but is not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. This article assumes that you are familiar with the programming language that is being demonstrated and with the tools that are used to create and to debug procedures. Microsoft support engineers can help explain the functionality of a particular procedure, but they will not modify these examples to provide added functionality or construct procedures to meet your specific requirements. NOTE: The following macro examples work only in PowerPoint. Visual Basic for Applications macros are not supported by the Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: Before you can run the sample Visual Basic macro, you must add a reference to the Microsoft Excel 9.0 object library model. To add the reference:

  1. On the Tools menu, point to Macro, and then click Visual Basic Editor.
  2. On the Tools menu, click References.
  3. In the References - VBAProject dialog box, click to select the Microsoft Excel 9.0 Object Library check box.
  4. Click OK.

You now have a reference (in this project) to the Graph 9.0 object model.

Sample Visual Basic for Applications Procedure

   Sub UpdateAllGraphs()

      Dim oShape As Shape
      Dim oSlide As Slide
      Dim oGraph As Object

      ' Loop through each slide in the presentation.
      For Each oSlide In ActivePresentation.Slides

         ' Loop through all the shapes on the current slide.
         For Each oShape In oSlide.Shapes

            ' Check whether the shape is an Excel linked OLE object.
            If oShape.Type = msoLinkedOLEObject Then

               ' Check whether the OLE object is a Chart or a Sheet object.
               If oShape.OLEFormat.ProgID = "Excel.Chart.9" _
               Or oShape.OLEFormat.ProgID = "Excel.Sheet.9" Then

                  ' Found a Chart; obtain object reference, and
                  ' then update.
                  Set oGraph = oShape.OLEFormat.Object

               End If
            End If
         Next oShape
      Next oSlide

   End Sub
