(PHPPO)" Comments: cc: "flom@NDRI.ORG" Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" Does the section on Chart Effects tab in the online help pasted below help? Animate text and objects: In normal view, display the slide that has the text or objects you want to animate. On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation, and then click the Effects tab. If you are animating a chart created in Microsoft Graph, click the Chart Effects tab. Under Check to animate slide objects, select the check box next to the text or object you want to animate. Under Entry animation and sound and Introduce text (if you are animating text), select the options you want. For Help on an option, click the question mark and then click the option. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for every object you want to animate. Click the Order and Timing tab. To change the order of animation, select the object you want to change under Animation order, and then click one of the arrows to move the object up or down in the list. -----Original Message----- From: Fehd, Ronald J.
