I was wondering if there's a way to number pages in Powerpoint using this style : "01, 02, 03..." instead of "1, 2, 3..."

Thanks a lot

  • Welcome on GD.SE, mey, and with an interesting question... Powerpoint is a bit poor at field formatting level, and I haven't found references neither to insert the number of slides as a field nor to format the slide number field. Perhaps you can try to add a textbox with VBA and insert the formatted number... ;-) – Paolo Gibellini Mar 31 '16 at 7:48

    Thanks Paolo! I suspected so....and I'm not familiar with VBA :) I added a text box with " PAGE # ", but my client doesn't want to insert the page number manually...so I guess I'll have to stay with a single-figure page numbering for now.... Thanks again! – mey Mar 31 '16 at 10:09

Until Microsoft "fix" this rather obvious omission in PowerPoint, you can achieve this with an add-in found here:
