Hi,

for my fathers birthday I want to make presentation containing a slide where with a centered number which counts up from 1 to a 70.
I think one must do this with a VBA procedure?
But I have no idea how to do and how to insert it in my presentation because I very seldom do things with power point.

Any hints or links to tutorials?

you can find a good sample of a counter presentation here
http://pubs.logicalexpressions.com/Pub0009/LPMArticle.asp?ID=310

instead of the counting down as in the article you can of course adjust for a counting up secquence

Thanks but I forgot to say that I have only Power Point 2000 available but the link uses 2002 or 2003 animation features.
Second problem is You can give no less that a second between to stages but this would be too long for me.
Any other hints?

Look for avi OR gif animation that has 1 to 70

I hope this helps.

I've got it running and it works as I expect but I have to start the macro by hand (Extras, Macros, ...).
How can I start it automatically with the presentation?

In PPT2000, you could create an eventhandler

There is an article in the PPT FAQ
http:/www.rdpslides.com/pptfaq 
which explains this in greater detail
