Return value

This example displays the shape number, the slide number, and the number of columns in the first table of the active presentation.

Dim ColCount As Integer

Dim sl As Integer

Dim sh As Integer

With ActivePresentation

    For sl = 1 To .Slides.Count
        For sh = 1 To .Slides(sl).Shapes.Count
            If .Slides(sl).Shapes(sh).HasTable Then
                ColCount = .Slides(sl).Shapes(sh) _

                MsgBox "Shape " & sh & " on slide " & sl & _
                    " contains the first table and has " & _
                    ColCount & " columns."

                Exit Sub
            End If

End With

This example tests the selected shape to see if it contains a table. If it does, the code sets the width of column one to 72 points (one inch).

With ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange

    If .HasTable = True Then

       .Table.Columns(1).Width = 72

    End If

End With
