    Excel VBA not returning to PPT after opening and running PPT Macro with Dialog Box

    Hello,

    I have the following code in an Excel file that works with a PPT file. After the PPT code runs the FinishMerge_Click macro (that code is below my Excel code) in PPT it doesn't switch to PPT so that I can click on the Message Box OK button.

    NewStrName in the PPT code will be Category Review + Category Name + BU Name

    ANY HELP OUT THERE?

    Excel Code:

    Sub FinishCategoryReview() 
    Dim objPP As Object
    Dim objPPFile As Object
    Dim strName As String
    Dim NewStrName As String
    
    
    '    ~~> Change this to the relevant file
        strName = GetDesktopPath & "Category Review Template.pptm"
        
    Set objPP = CreateObject("PowerPoint.Application")
    objPP.Visible = True
     
     
    Application.EnableEvents = False
     
    objPP.Run "Category Review Template.pptm!Module1.FinishMerge_Click"
     
    Application.EnableEvents = True
     
    
    
    Set objPPFile = Nothing
    Set objPP = Nothing
    
    
    AppActivate "Category Review + Category Name + BU Name.pptx"
     
    End Sub
    PPT Code:

    Sub FinishMerge_Click()
    
    
    ActivePresentation.Slides.InsertFromFile _
    "C:\Users\mogr0002\Downloads\Category Review Grand Canyon - PACKAGED BEVERAGES STORY TEST.pptx", 1, 1, 26
    
    
    Dim i           As Long
        Dim varrPos     As Variant
    
    
    
    
        varrPos = Array(34, 34, _
                        36, 36, _
                        38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, 38, _
                        40, 40, 40, 40, 40, 40, 40, _
                        43, 43, 43, 43, 43)
    
    
    
    
        With ActivePresentation
            For i = 0 To UBound(varrPos)
                .Slides(2).MoveTo toPos:=varrPos(i)
            Next i
    
    
    
    
    
    
            NewStrName = .Slides(2).Shapes("Title 1").TextFrame.TextRange.Text
            .Slides(2).Shapes("Title 1").TextFrame.TextRange.Copy
    '        .Slides(2).Delete
            .Slides(1).Shapes("Title 1").TextFrame.TextRange.Paste
    
    
        With ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes("Title 1")
    
    
        With .TextFrame.TextRange.Font
    
    
            .Size = 40
    
    
            .Name = "Arial"
    
    
            .Bold = True
    
    
    
    
        End With
    
    
        Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes("Title 1") _
        .TextFrame.TextRange.ParagraphFormat.Alignment = ppAlignCenter
    
    
    End With
    
    
    
    
            Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes("FinishMerge").Delete
            Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes("Oval 6").Delete
            .SaveAs GetDesktopPath & NewStrName & ".pptx"
        End With
    
    
    
    
        MsgBox "Congratulations! Your new Category Review has been saved. You can now begin your Category Review work in this file.", vbInformation
    
    
    End Sub
