Add or load a PowerPoint add-in

Add-ins are supplemental programs that add custom commands or custom features to Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007.

You can obtain add-ins for Microsoft PowerPoint on the Downloads site on Office Online or on third-party vendor Web sites. If you are a developer, you can write your own custom add-in programs by using Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) (Visual Basic for Applications (VBA): A macro-language version of Microsoft Visual Basic that is used to program Windows applications and is included with several Microsoft applications.).

Add your add-in to the Available Add-Ins list, and then load the add-in.
