Function BodyTextPlaceholder(oSl As Slide) As Shape
    Dim oSh As Shape
    For Each oSh In oSl.Shapes
        If oSh.Type = msoPlaceholder Then

این Function با یک ماکرو قابل تست است:

Sub TestBodyTextPlaceholder()
    Dim oSl As Slide
    Dim oSh As Shape
    Set oSl = ActivePresentation.Slides(2)
    Set oSh = BodyTextPlaceholder(oSl)
    ' If there's no placeholder, the function returns nothing, so test:
    If Not oSh Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox oSh.TextFrame.TextRange.Text
    End If
End Sub

یک function دیگه:

    ' If you want the second body placeholder, pass a 2 as third parameter
