Creating a drop down list in MS Power Point 2007

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -


I want to insert a drop down list on MS – Power point 2007 which can be edited when the slide is in the open form and not during presentation.

I would like to know how I can create this list using the Power point templates and also edit it.

In addition, I want to move the flash object which is in the Power Point presentation and move it to top.

Please help me to do this.

Thanks in advance.

Creating a drop down list in MS Power Point 2007


If you want to create a PowerPoint presentation with a drop-down list you can use the active X controls to create one and the Visual Basic for applications code to define how it works.

Since Microsoft Office 2007 and later is based on the Visual Programming language you can use your knowledge of VBA code to customize the drop-drown list in PowerPoint.


1. Open PowerPoint ad navigate to the slide where you want to insert the drop-down list. Click the "Developer" tab in the Office Ribbon.

2. Click the "Combo Box" button from the "Controls" section. This will create a drop-down list on the PowerPoint slide. Draw the shape of the menu on the slide.

3. Right click the drop-drown list and choose "View Code". This will allow you to see and edit the VBA Code for the Combo Box. Enter some basic codes to give values for the drop-down list.

4. Close the VBA window when you're done entering the code. Press "F5" to launch the PowerPoint presentation and test the functionality of your new drop-down list.
