Link boxes of a Hierarchy to slide name

Post by gailb »

Is this even possible? I have a ppt with 4 slides. The first slide is the top level hierarchy with the other 3 slides the drill down.

Is it possible on slide 1 to create an hyperlink to the slide with the same names as in the box from slide one?

I know I can manually insert a hyperlink to the slide I choose, but hoping this can be done via VBA as the names with be different every time.

If there isn't any slide matching a name found on slide 1, then no hyperlink on those boxes.

Hmm. As far as I can tell, the PowerPoint object model does not support adding hyperlinks to SmartArt nodes, although it is possible to do so in the interface. :aflame:
