I cannot find anything on this, except a small excerpt in wikipedia that it can be done.
I'm creating a game in powerpoint(I have 2003) and I will be coding with the vba(macros).

I want to be able to have a save game progress feature. In what way do I create the code? Or is there a code that already exists I could use?



I have sort of a beginners understanding of macros and its coding. I've made a few things already that function pretty well.

Anything will help, thank you!

hmm experience and fun lol. I'm in school for video game design. This is one simple medium that can be used for practice basically.
