Break all of the links in a presentation
Sometimes you need to break all of the links in a presentation. The links dialog box in some versions of PowerPoint allows you to do this fairly easily; in other versions, you must select and break the links one at a time. If you only have a few links, it's no big deal, but it can get very tedious if you have many links to break.
Automatically break the links
This little bit of VBA code will break all of the links in the current presentation.
PLEASE: Run this only on a COPY of your original presentation.
Sub BreakAllLinks() Dim oSld As Slide Dim oSh As Shape For Each oSld In ActivePresentation.Slides For Each oSh In oSld.Shapes If oSh.Type = msoLinkedOLEObject Then oSh.LinkFormat.BreakLink End If Next ' Shape Next ' Slide End Sub
