powerpoint and .net - need to have a program to update powerpoint links

P: 27
i have a powerpoint presentation that uses links to other files and are put on the slide using OLE.

The problem is that I have different users updating the information on the slides, which is not being reflected on the main slide.

At any rate, I'd like to write an external VB app that can be scheduled to run, update the links within the program, resave the powerpoint pres, and then reopen it on the computer.

I'm a little fuzzy on the use of declaring object variables and manipulating them...since I'm assuming this is how I will have to go. Any suggestions?

And to add one more thing, it has to be an external application that I can have run using alternate permissions due to the fact that the user account that the powerpoint pres runs on is restricted.

Any ideas? Thanks!
