zer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Good Day,

Im working on making an app that will take lesson plans from a word file and throw them into the instructors notes section of a powerpoint.

I already have the two programs reading what i need. I just cant locate the object that has the text in the notes pane.

If someone could help it will save my guys a lot of time. Thanks!!

    I figured it out and im not going to keep you monks out of the golden gem.

    $ppt = ActivePresentation->Slides(1)->NotesPage->Shapes->Placeholders( +2)->TextFrame->TextRange->InsertAfter ("Added Text"); #ppt is the win +32::OLE module
    This was referenced off of the msdn Slide Range. It was somewhat hidden but i found her
