Export//macro and IE Plugin ?

Hi,

I have read many threads in QV community around how to export graphs and tables in ppt/excel or word. and various versions of macro to do this.

After trying many, I still encounter the same error when I run any macro with the following command :

Set PPApp = CreateObject("Powerpoint.Application")

The error shown is:

ActiveX component can't create object: 'Powerpoint.Application'

By reading left and right in the community forums, I understood that my macro will not work until I have the QV IE plugin installed.

What I want to do :

Automate creation of a ppt presentation with key graph and tables (not dynamic)

What do I use :

QV 9 (client, not server)

Windows 7

Microsoft powerpoint 2003

LEt me know :

1. If my understanding is correct ie I need IE plugin

2. If correct, where do I download it (QV website does not have any download plugin option anymore)

3. Is there any risk, limitation due to the installation of the plugin.


Thanks

TD

Macro security must be set to System level, and PowerPoint must be installed on the client computer.

Check macro sescurity by tyoeing Shift+Ctrl+M.
