Create PowerPoint Presentations Automatically using VBA

Published on Oct 6, 2008 in excel links

What a Monday it is. Most of the us woke up to find that whatever we have been accumulating for the last few years in investment gains has been wiped out (BSE Sensex at 2 year low, Dow slips below 10000). Not a very pleasant way to start the week, but then may be this […]
