 Powerpoint VBA questions

I'm in need of a few things that I don't seem to be able to find doing a search
on the net:
1.  A reference for the Powerpoint object model.  I thought this would be in the
powerpoint documentation, or on MSDN, but no luck.  Does anyone have a link that
they can point me to.

2.  Some samples of VBA code using powerpoint.  One example of creating a
document, inserting some stuff, and saving as a new filename would be great.  I
attempted to use some of the stuff from Word VBA, but things don't quite work as
I expected.

Thanks much for any help

 Powerpoint VBA questions
The easiest source of information about the PowerPoint object model is
PowerPoint itself.  You can use the Macro Recorder built into PowerPoint to
record a set of actions, and then use the VBA IDE to view the code that
would perform those actions programmatically.  The VBA IDE also provides
you with access to the VBA help for PowerPoint's Object Model.  You can
reach this using the Object Browser.

There are a few samples of automating PowerPoint from VB and VC++ available


that also might be helpful.  Specifically, the following article might give
you some pointers:
