Visual Basic PowerPoint Macro Help

This is a request for people who have familiarity with VB, specifically with regards to macros in PowerPoint.

So, I have this report that's due to a client. It's a massive, massive PowerPoint deck: something like 350 slides. I just received a memo indicating that all mentions of the client's brand or any other brand must be consistently color-coded. I'm not looking forward to hitting control-f and searching for every instance of that word and then manually setting the color of the text.

I just know there's got to be a good way of automating this, maybe by setting up a macro for each brand and then just running it. But I haven't the faintest clue how to do it. I have little to no programming experience and I was wondering if I could get a couple pointers on how to automate this seemingly trivial task.

I'm using the 2003 version of PowerPoint, but I would like something that would work in 2007 as well.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
