InfoFields in Analysis for Power Point


I am trying to put together a presentation in Analysis for Power Point (Version

And I would like to add InfoFields for specific variables at certain spots on the slides. Apparently, I can only add one Info Field that contains all variables. There is no possibility to change the content of this InfoField. Is this correct?

Or is it possible meanwhile to access API functions like SapGetVariable within Analysis for PPT?

Thanks and regards,

    Hi Stefan,

    I never did it, but if you can implement macros in your PPT, then you can use:

    Dim lResult As Variant

    lResult = Application.Run("SAPGetVariable", "DS_1", "TECHN_VAR_NAME", "Value")

    Just replace the "TECHN_VAR_NAME" with your variable name...

    It looks like you can create a module in tab "Development Tools" (you probably need to activate that manually, since my standard installation of Excel/PPT does not show this tab by default.)

    Then you need to insert some Active-X Elements like a text field, and it should be possible to set its value via your macro?

    Best regards,

    • Hi Martin,

      thanks, I will try. But I'm not sure whether I can save macros within Anaylsis presentations.

      I will give feedback when I know more
