I am using MS PPT 2002 SP3

I want to stack a series of 3 objects so that one looks to be in front of the other

I inherited a series of U shaped objects that I wish to stack

I go to the Draw Toolbar,-> Order -> Bring to Front, but the object does not appear to be 'in front' of the other object.

What should I do

You can try Select Multiple in PPT 2003. It will give you a list of object on the slide -- maybe that will make it easier to see what's happening. shows you how to add it to your toolbars.
"I inherited a series of U shaped objects that I wish to stack".

Are the "U shaped objects" separate images?

Personally I would just create a new image that gives the appearance of the "U shaped objects" stacked one in front of the other, and insert that single image rather than trying to edit the layout of the separate images in PowerPoint.  This is easily achieved in even very basic and free image editing program as long as you have images with transparent backgrounds (PNG, GIF) and the program supports transparent layers.
Just for the info of other experts, the following questions are open in which much the same question is being asked:

Certainly seems like these are all related. This one indicates some trouble, but without more information it's really impossible to help.

Having similar questions scattered all over doesn't help the situation, either.

I am sorry, I was confused by what I was asking and I was confused by the answers.  Not an expert in this area.

Sorry for any confusion, I will try to be slower the next time I post possible redundancies
