CountDown timer in a slide of PowerPoint

Hi there!

I know nothing about VBA and I´m not used to PowerPoint´s resources apart from the trivial very very basic.

Could someone help me putting a countdown timer in a specific PowerPoint 2007 slide in such a way that the timer starts with 3min and go down till zero, when appears a message box telling readers that "Time is up!"?

Thanks,
fskilnik

Use the animation to advance slide to one that says time is up. See the attached file for an easy way to accomplish this!

Hi, Kevin!

Thanks for the reply, but I want my students to see the countdown timer working, therefore they are able to measure the time they are using for the question presented in that slide!
