Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Open the presentation contained in the above folder (it contains a somewhat skewed look at the Glazers' original plans when they took over Manchester United), and write a macro which lists out to the immediate window how many shapes there are for each slide in the presentation (omitting any slides which contain no shapes):

Your immediate window should contain this when you run the macro

Some facts which may help you:

  • Each presentation contains a collection of slides
  • Each slide contains a collection of shapes (textboxes, drawings and the like)
  • Most collections have a Count property, which returns the number of items in the collection

When you've finished, save this presentation as Counted Shapes, then close it down.
