ok, what i want to do seems simple but maybe not.  all i want to do is, is make an object i designate be clickable and have another object open.  i dont want a whole nother slide or program.

all i want is to be able to click one object and another object apear and or disapear.

Yes, i want this on a power point presentation,

lets say i have a box that when i click it, i want lets say another box apear with information concerning the first box or what ever info is needed.  kind of like a pop up window instead of having another slide come up so i can decrease the size of the presentation and so it looks cleaner.

It can be done to some extent.

PowerPoint has a custom animation where you can put things on a slide and have them appear/disappear on the next mose click.

For instance you could have a slide like

SLIDE TITLE

-Point 1
  -- Subpoint1
  -- SubPoint2

WIth the next click the slide could look like without a true slide change.  The subpoints could be added with mouse clicks.

SLIDE TITLE

-Point 1
-Point 2
  -- Subpoint1
  -- SubPoint2

Look under SLIDE -->  CUSTOM ANIMATION
Play with it a little and I think you'll get the idea behind it.
