Adding Total Number of slides to the page number field in the footer

    I was looking for a feature in powerpoint that would be the equivalent to
    one that exists in MS Word. That is, in Word I can add a field in the
    footer to read "page 5 of 12". Powerpoint only seems to have the slide
    number.

    I suspect this might be where VBA comes in. Anyone have some sample code to
    do this? (That is if this is the solution path).

    thanks
