Generally speaking, I'd probably just apply a wipe animation and set it to wipe from left. Then change the options to repeat a number of times or continue until end of slide.

Please post which version of PPT if you need specific instructions.

Sure.

Select the arrow and click the Animations tab on the Ribbon. Click the Wipe animation in the gallery. Then do the following:

1. Click the Effect Options button and choose From Left
2. Click the Animation Pane button to open the Animation Pane
3. Double-click the animation in the Animation Pane, then choose the Timing tab. You can also right-click the animation in the Pane and select Timing (see Timing.png pix) to open this dialog box.
4. On the Timing tab of the dialog box, click the Repeat field to open that dropdown and choose Until End of Slide (see Repeat.png pix)

You can type in the Repeat field, too, even though it doesn't look like it. Just click and select all the characters "(none)" then type a number (7, for example), then press TAB on your keyboard to "set" the number you just typed.
