VBA Macro in PowerPoint to Differentiate Duplicate Slide Titles

VBA Macro in PowerPoint to Differentiate Duplicate Slide Titles

VBA Macro in PowerPoint to Differentiate Duplicate Slide Titles


After playing around for hours, I've run into a wall on this one. I have reoccurring 300+ slide presentations brought to me weekly, which are split in three to five sections, each section using the same title repeatedly. For accessibility purposes (specifically addressing users utilizing screen reader software), I must change the slides titles to be unique. For example, the original titles for the first part of the presentation read: Current Events, repeated 86 times. That should be changed to: Current Events (1), Current Events (2), Current Events (3), and so on.

The titles are specifically formatted as titles, not text boxes. I need the macro to reset the number sequence any time a new set of duplicate titles is encountered rather than just continuing on a single sequence (i.e. Current Events (86), then on to Breakdown (1)).

Surely there is a way to code a solution? Thank you in advance for your time and assistance, you have no idea how much I appreciate it!
