PowerPoint VBA Programming

Pasting text into an existing shape

This should work and it did prior to PowerPoint 2007:

Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes(1).TextFrame.TextRange. _

But since 2007, it generates the error -2147024809 (80070057) “The specified parameter has an invalid value.”


Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Shapes(1).TextFrame.TextRange. _
InsertAfter(" ").Paste
