    animated a chart series (PPT 2003)

    I could swear I used to do this in years past, but now I can't figure it out. I have a column chart with 3 series of data. I've got it in a 3D chart and rotated the 3-D view a bit. I want each series to appear one at a time, rising UP from the bottom. When I put an animation on the chart, however, the only one that allows me to animate each SERIES separately is 'Blinds'. The other entrance effects that I've tried only let me animate the entire chart at once. Is there some way to do this? It was a very effective presentation method.

    Also, the way I remember it, I was able to reverse the order, so that the back row (series 3) appeared first, followed by series 2, then series 1. Even when I get the option to animate all 3 series with the Blinds entrance, I can only get it to go in 1-2-3 order. I'd like to reverse that because the front series can sometimes partially block the series in the back.

    Has this capability been taken out of Office 2003?

    You asked more or less the same in <post:=706,668>post 706,668</post:> but didn't react to SteveHocking's reply.
    Also see the thread starting at <post:=636,699>post 636,699</post:>.

    Re: animated a chart series (PPT 2003)

    I thought I had posted that question earlier, (wouldn't be surprised if I did it in previous years as well, because each year I seem to run in to the same problem) but when I did a search for posts under my username, I only got a couple of posts as a result--neither one of which was about these graphs. I've been posting here for quite a few years, evidently I didn't have something set right in my search.

    In any case, the one thread that mentioned ungrouping the chart seems to do the trick almost as well as what I was (maybe falsely) remembering doing years ago. Maybe I'm even remembering doing this from my Harvard Graphics days--but that goes back about 20 years.

    Thanks
