    Greetings all,

    I am making a looping powerpoint to be displayed on monitors. What I cant seem to do is have a counter update daily. My goal is to have a slide which shows how many days have passed since an important event, and not have to update it everyday.

    The closest I have come is to imbed an excel sheet that has "=TODAY()-A2", with "A2" containing the comparison date. But with this, I have to open the imbeded sheet, then click back out to have it update itself.

    Any knowledge on how I can have Powerpoint do this for me while it's in presentation mode?

    Thanks in advance folks!

    P.S. it will be running on a PC not saved to a disc.

    Anyone have any ideas, or already know it's not possible?
