Using Power Point, is there a way to end the show without having to get the "black" screen which just shows that this is the end of the slide show?
For example, when the show goes all of the way through, and when the viewer is on the last slide, the next screen is just the black screen.

create a blank slide and put it at the end.
You should also be able to make the click of that slide close the show

In the same vein as Danny's advice, I've attended seminars where the last slide is usually something like "Thanks for coming! Please fill out your comment card!", and the presenter leaves that slide up as they turn on the lights and shake hands as people file out.
It may seem a bit "cute" but it's a clean ending to the presentation.

To turn off the 'black slide' the appears at the end of a presentation.
On powerpoint
Tools menu > options > view tab > untick the 'end with black slide' box.

Okay I have a similar problem but with a few other wrinkles. I have a form that is on a screen out in our plant. It displays the number of days accident free. When the day count turns over to another number my code fires gives the focus to an unbound OLE frame in which the setting "getFocuse" fires the embedded powerpoint slideshow. The slide is simply animated fireworks going off for about 5 seconds. The ppt show ends on the black screen. I really need it to exit without any user intervention because there's no one manning this computer. There's got to be a way to force the slide show to exit without pausing on the black or last screen?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
thanks
Mike

Hi Mike,
Looks like TAJ's solution above works. Have you tried that on the computer that runs the slide show?

DB all it does is sit on the black slide or if I disable the black slide it sits on the last slide.
Very frustrating
thanks
Mike

Hi Mike,
ere's what I did though not sure if it will work for you.
1. Created a new PP file
2. Added a new slide
3. Entered a title just to show something
4. From the Transitions Ribbon, I put a check mark in Advance Slide After: and set it to 1 sec (I also unchecked the On Mouse Click but not sure if that's necessary)
5. Added another slide and also make it auto advance after 1 sec
6. Went to File > Options > Advanced > Slide Show > End with black slide and unchecked it
7. Then, I went to File > Save As and selected PowerPoint Show (*.ppsx) from the Save as type: dropdown
8. Double-clicked on the new file to watch the show and it automatically quit after the last slide

Mike,
If you just want to display animated fireworks briefly, you might want to use a different method than a Powerpoint presentation. I believe you can render a PP slideshow as a video file (Save As...Windows Media Video in PP 2010). If you can do that, you can very likely display the video file in an Access form control. That way there'd be no need for a call to an external program just for the sake of the animation.
Hope this helps,
Dennis
