I am trying to make a text box have no fill, using a macro in PowerPoint 2007.

I went to an XP version of PowerPoint and recorded a macro to do this.  The code it created was:

    With ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange
        .Fill.Visible = msoTrue
        .Fill.Solid
        .Fill.ForeColor.SchemeColor = ppFill
        .Fill.Transparency = 0#
    End With

This code works fine in a macro in the XP version of PowerPoint, but does not work in PowerPoint 2007.  It returns a solid white fill with no transparency.

Does anyone know what code will work in VBA (a macro) in PowerPoint 2007 to give a text box no fill at all?

I made a mistake in my posting.  The code I posted returned a fill on purpose.  The code generated to remove the fill was:

    With ActiveWindow.Selection.ShapeRange
        .Fill.Visible = msoFalse
        .Fill.Solid
        .Fill.Transparency = 0#
    End With
