MS Access 2013 to PowerPoint Live update RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Powerpoint 2013 on windows 7. Is there any way I can link Access database form to my PPT on another PC. There is one application on sale called Datapoint, it is way but too expensive for me. Is there any similar application that I can use for free.

    The thing is, PC1 is for updating the database on Access form/query. And PC2 is for running the table on the presentation. I need to update the ppt on PC2 without remote connection when I update my database or excel table.

    When I paste a live link, every time I have to connect remotely with PC2 and do the right click update links to update it. There should be some other way.

    Is there anyway I can do this? PLEASE HELP

  • Hi,

    I have already done whats told in both websites. It doesn't help. It only updates every time I reopen the ppt. Actually I want to update the links when the presentation is running.
