How to goto a specific slide in MS PowerPoint 2007 or 2010

I have a presentation with a navigation slide (slide with a menu that hyperlinks to other slides).  What I need is that after a user completes a section say at slide 20, if they hit any button to advance, or click the mouse button or scroll wheel, I need them to be taken back to the main navigation slide to start over.

I have some VBA knowledge from Access but have not had to mess with PowerPoint, so if a VBA solution is suggested please describe how to implement it has well.  My assistant may have to make the changes for me and she is not versed in  any advance feature of the Office applications.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

First the good news: this does not require VBA and is very easy to set up.

Please find attached file to illustrate the following:

On the SlideShow ribbon, click Custom Slide Show > Custom Shows
In the ensuing dialog, click "New".
Give the custom show a name and then click all the slides that you want to include in that show and add them to the box on the right of the dialog.
Set up custom shows for each of your sections.
The attached has three custom shows, Rectangle, Circle and Triangle.

On the main navigation slide, set up hyperlinks.
Use the "Place in this document" option and select the custom show. Do NOT select a slide. Select the custom show!!.
Tick the "Show and return" option and hit OK.
Set up such a hyperlink for each of your sections.

Now the user can click the hyperlink, is then taken to the custom show, and after the last slide of the custom show is returned to the navigation page.

Cheers, teylyn
