Can I setup a template and enter text/images via VB .NET RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Basically I've written a simple program which takes data from ArcGIS and adds it into a Powerpoint document by using the PowerPoint.Application object and related objects. On each page of the Powerpoint document is an image and two sets of text (a title and an abstract). This is fairly simplistic though, I'd like to be able to have a more complicated template and to write text or place images into the locations specified within the template. As such, the application shouldn't need to know where each text location is in the Powerpoint template in terms of X,Y co-ordinates. I just want to be able to say "get the Title field and write this text into it". No idea if this is even possible though.
