    Access to PowerPoint Program

    I'm looking to create a program that extracts information from an Access database and pastes the info directly onto a formatted PowerPoint slide. However, I'm not as experienced as I would like to be with C++. Is there anybody out there who could give me a few pointers on where to begin? Thanks.

    Search for "C++ and powerpoint" or something along those lines.

    Look-up COM (Component Object Model), and maybe DCOM (Distributed-COM).

    It's my understanding that COM is used when you cut from one Windows application and paste into another.

    I've never written a program using COM or DCOM, but I have the impression that it's easier with VB / VBA than with C++

    Thanks for your advice. I'll see what I can do with it. However, I do not have any experience with Visual Basic so I have to go the C++ rout
