    Please help me out by designing a macro (with coding) to move to the desired slide in a powerpoint presentation (Normal view).

    For eg. If i am workng on a 80 slide powerpoint file in MS powerpoint 2007 and want to move to slide 10.

    Thanks and regards

    This should get you going:
    Sub Take_me() 
        Dim strSlide As String 
        Dim IntSlide As Integer 
        Do 
            strSlide = InputBox("Where to?") 
        Loop Until IsNumeric(strSlide) 
        IntSlide = Val(strSlide) 
        If IntSlide < 1 Or IntSlide > ActivePresentation.Slides.Count Then 
            MsgBox "Out of range" 
            Exit Sub 
        End If 
        ActivePresentation.Slides(IntSlide).Select 
    End Sub

    Thanks...

    Hi Wilson

    Thanks for giving a very quick coding reply for my request.

    Is it? possible to have the "Input box - where to go" something like - always floating object when the powerpoint is opened. It would be helpful when we want to go to the desired slide when we require.

    The help on the same would be really useful for my day to day work as i deal with lot of powerpoint jobs.

    Thanks and regards

    It is but you would need to add a non modal userform.
    We have a free addIn which does what you need. You can get the installer here.
    There are no instructions but it's very easy to use. You will either get a new toolbar (2002/2003) or a menu in the Add In tab in 2007 onwards. Note it will not load automatically if you have 2010 64 bit and you will need to manually load it.
