    Change color or text in a slide show (2003)

    I need to be able to click on an object while in Slide Show few and have one of the following occur: A box, when clicked on would turn from a color to becoming invisible so what is underneath will be displayed or have text go from white to black once the area of the slide is clicked.

    Thanks.

    Scott

    Hi Scott

    I think that the easiest was to achieve this will be to insert a new sheet with the after effect that you require and on the original sheet hyperlink the object to the new sheet.

    Thank you very much for your reply. Unfortunately, there are 10 choices and they may not come in order. Therefore I would have to create too many variations.

    Thanks for the try. They problem is that the changes are not made in a specific order.

    I ended up switching the project to Access. It does not look as good but the flexibility is there.

    Access! I'm impressed and confused.

    Here is a file with some sample changes - no order is required.

    Excellent. They changed the requirement to add values for each item revealed. Then they had to calculate totals. I am glad I know Access because the calculations in PowerPoint opened up many other issues.

    Thanks for you help.
