    Command to make words appear as called for (PowerPoint 2003)

    I have a macro that will highlight words on the screen that I want to emphasize...however, don't think it will help me in this scenario...please see attached PPoint "Example".zip

    I need a way in this "Family Feud" type of game to make the words appear on the screen only after a student calls "that particular" answer out just like on the Family Feud TV show.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thank you so much....

    How should the presentation know which word to display next? Voice recognition? Clairvoyance?

    Command to make words appear as called - RESOLVED

    Hans...
    Thanks for the answer back...I figured it out.
    Here are the steps as I worked it through:

    1. Create buttons for as many textboxes that are on the screen.
    2. Type a number in each button.
    3. Choose Slideshow...Custom Animation
    4. Choose the First text box (it's border)
    5. Choose the "Add Effect" drop down on the right side of the screen.
    6. Choose an Animation - In this slide example I have chosen,
