Calling MATLAB from PowerPoint
Updated 1 Sep 2016
A white paper that describes a simple workflow, using VB code (provided in a sample Master.bas file), to call any MATLAB code or to run any MATLAB files from within PowerPoint. Simply edit the .bas file per the instructions, and load it into your PowerPoint. Then edit any object in the PowerPoint to modify its Action Settings, select Run Macro, steer to the proper macro, and you're up and running.
Also includes a tip for managing demos, code, etc. from a single-source *.BAS document.
