Retrieve data from Power Point object

Hi Guys,

Has anyone ever retrieved data from a text box into a Power Point presentation?

If so, how?

Thanks in advance,

Aldo.

Re: Retrieve data from Power Point object

Hi,

Powerpoint is afaIk not a supported source of data for Qlikview. Have a look if you can somehow export the contents of those textboxes into .txt files or something - or just make Powerpoint draw its data from a file that can then at the same time serve as a data_source for QlikView.

Thanks for your answer.

I am thinking on using some vba code over Power Point to export text box content.

Do you have some example?
