If you use the Presentations.Open command in a macro to open another presentation that contains macros, those macros may not function.
To work around this problem, use either of the following methods.
Instead of the Presentations.Open command, use the ActivePresentation.FollowHyperlink command to open the presentation as a hyperlink.
Method 2: Change Security to Low
Change your security settings to low. To do this, follow these steps:
- On the Tools menu, point to Macro, and then click Security.
- Click the Security Level tab.
- Click Low and then click OK.
WARNING: This method poses certain security risks. Please consider the implications of this method before using it. Always make sure your macros come from a trusted source.
