Update powerpoint slides through a macro
I have a regular, monthly powerpoint presentation due and the combined output (rtf files) leads to about 90 slides. Each month has its own designated folder (with a consistent naming structure, e.g. /Monthly Trending/2023-04/Output/). Is there a way to create/run a VBA macro that will automatically update the images in the powerpoint with the images from the new monthly data/output?
Ideally the code would know that File A.rtf, image 1 replaces the old image on Trending.ppt, slide 7. File A.rtf, image 5 replaces the image on Trending.ppt, slide 8. File B.rtf, image 5 replaces the image on Trending.ppt, slide 10. etc etc.
If ripping the images from a rtf file doesn't work, then resaving as a word doc is a minor inconvenience. Finding an automated way to update ppt images would definitely save a lot of manual effort of copying and pasting and deleting.
