Using the VBA Editor

After recording a macro, PowerPoint tries to reduce the sequence of recorded PowerPoint commands to a series of VBA commands that would have the same effect. If you find that you want to record more powerful macros, you may need to use the VB Editor. The VB Editor is a separate program you can use to customize, create, and debug macros using the VB programming language.

Editing a Macro Using the VB Editor

You may find that sometimes a macro is not working the way you had intended. This may be caused by the way your mouse and keystrokes were converted into Visual Basic. For example, if you record a macro and press the Page Down key five times (from slide one), it will be rewritten in Visual Basic as a macro that goes to slide six. To create a macro that would move down five slides, you would have to use the Visual Basic Editor to edit the default macro and make it work the way you intended.
