Is it possible to have a Power Point Presentation open/run when a user clicks on a command button on a form in Access. I'm aware of the "run app" command, however, it only opens Power Point Application not the presentation.
I could be wrong, but I want to say you could probably use "Shell" to accomplish what you're after. I think that if you target a file using Shell, Windows will open the file in it's native program - PowerPoint in your case. Try something like the following under the OnClick event of your button and just replace the file path and make sure you use the proper extension.
Dim stAppName As String
stAppName = "C:\ProgramFiles\SomeProgram\SomeFile.xls"
Call Shell(stAppName, 1)
I've never tried this, so let me know if it works or not. HTH
