Example

Note Tag values are added and stored in uppercase text. You should perform tests on tag values using uppercase text, as shown in the second example.

This example adds a tag named "REGION" and a tag named "PRIORITY" to slide one in the active presentation.

With Application.ActivePresentation.Slides(1).Tags

    .Add "Region", "East"     'Adds "Region" tag with value "East"

    .Add "Priority", "Low"    'Adds "Priority" tag with value "Low"

End With

This example searches through the tags for each slide in the active presentation. If there's a tag named "PRIORITY," a message box displays the tag value. If the object doesn't have a tag named "PRIORITY," the example adds this tag with the value "Unknown."

For Each s In Application.ActivePresentation.Slides

    With s.Tags

        found = False

        For i = 1 To .Count

          If .Name(i) = "PRIORITY" Then

              found = True

              slNum = .Parent.SlideIndex

              MsgBox "Slide " & slNum & " Priority: " & .Value(i)

          End If

        Next

        If Not found Then

          slNum = .Parent.SlideIndex

          .Add "Priority", "Unknown"

          MsgBox "Slide " & slNum & " Priority tag added: Unknown"

        End If

    End With

Next
