    That's because you can't type into a regular textbox during a slide show.
    You will need to insert a textbox control from the Control Toolbox if you
    want to type something in during Slide Show mode.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish? We might have examples out there
    to point you to.

    If its a textbox from the Control Toolbox, you can use the ActivateShape()
    macro available at http://officeone.mvps.org/vba.html.
