expression A variable that represents an ActionSetting object.
For this property to affect the slide show action, you must set the Action property value to ppActionRunMacro or ppActionRunProgram.

With ActivePresentation.Slides(1) _ .Shapes(3).ActionSettings(ppMouseOver) .Action = ppActionRunMacro .Run = "CalculateTotal" .AnimateAction = True End With
