Hi there and welcome
You mean a word will be on a slide and you want to change this word in one go on the following day correct?
you could with a variable, but then you would be doing it in VBA, with a sub routine to go through and update each text box with the value, so it can get messy to manage as you need to update the code with any changes.
The easiest method, though depends on your slides, is to put the one text box in the master slide then you just need to update the masterslide once. Is this an option?
Else if not, then use the VBA editor in Powerpoint
Then you would use the code
dim val as string
(so text 1, 2 ect being the names of the textboxes on the slide)
Then you click in this, press F5 and they will be all updated with this word.
No, the master slide is fixed.
For the VBA, you do not insert a variable, that you cannot do. Your assigning values in the code to the text box.
So if the textbox is names text1 then in the code your saying text1 = val (val being my variable in the code above).
It would not create a variable for this as thats done in the DIM line
Can you provide the powerpoint and I will see how you have it structured.
Upload it and provide me the download link please
