PowerPoint Tip

Animating your charts in PowerPoint 2007
Charts can be colourful and effective in displaying data, and you can bring them to life on a PowerPoint slide by animating the chart bit by bit: column by column or bar by bar. For example, if you have a column chart, you can present the chart so that each column is introduced one at a time, wiping upwards from the bottom. This is how you do it:

Click onto the column chart on the slide, to select it;
On the Animation tab, select Custom Animation;
On the Custom Animation Task Pane, select Add Effect
Click onto Entrance and then select Wipe
Ensure that the Direction is set to “From Bottom”
Select Effect Options for that item in the Custom Animation Task Pane
Select the Chart Animation tab in the dialog box that appears
Select By Element in Series or else By Element in Category
Check that Start Animation by Drawing the Chart Background is ticked
You can leave the Start at “On Click” allowing you to introduce each element when you are ready, as you run your presentation.
