How to enable Auto Update of an embedded PI ProcessBook Trend in Power Point?

Hi guys,


I have copied a few Trends from a PI ProcessBook page into a Power Point.pptx file.

I need to get the PI ProcessBook Trend to update Automatically every time the .pptx file is opened by the client.

Currently, I can get the Trend to update by "Double-Clicking" on the embedded Trend and then exiting the corresponding PI ProcessBook Page that opens up within the Power Point File.

This way, the Trend in the Power Point gets updated with a snapshot of the latest Current Values.


My Question:

- Is there a way I can automate this step Using Power Point or VBA?


I don't want to Insert the PI Trend as Link as I want to show the full View of the Trend in the Presentation.
