Powerpoint slide - order of individual components visibility

I have a small problem with powerpoint 2007.  I am a real novice about putting a presentation together.

On a slide there are two objects.  I want the one at the top of the slide to be visible until a mouse click animates the lower object to also be visible.
I've got the situation that the lower object appears first then a mouse click displays the upper object.  The opposite of what I want.

I can't find the option to select the order that objects should be visible in (does that make sense?).  What option do I have to look for.

If you click the Animations tab, then the Custom Animations, it will open the animations pane. You can reorder the animations there by dragging them into place or by using the Reorder buttons at the bottom of the pane.

Thanks to both of you.
It was clicking the Custom Animations button that led me to a pane for changing the ordering of the objects!!  That was all I really required.  The link would lead me to that eventually.
