Rotate between slide shows

I have three power point presentations. I would like to be able to automatically rotate through them.  Is there a way to automatically go from one power point to another one

It would be great if I could put them in one folder and have the slide show rotate through each power point in that folder.

That is for 2003, I have 2013. The option "Slides from Files" does not exist in 2013. At least I cannot find it

pls try

i. Home tab, click on New Slide and select Reuse Slides

ii.  from the Reuse Slides pane, click on Browse to locate the file and select Browse File...

iii. Select the file and click on Open.  Check Keep source formatting, to retain slide formatting

iv.  Right-click on Slide 1 and select Insert All Slides

v. From the View tab, within the Presentation Views group, click on Slide Sorter to sort slides and so on

That will have to do. I was hoping I could just drop a powerpoint into a folder and it would be part of the rotation the way desktop pictures can be displayed.

Is there a way to set advanced slide settings and have it effect all slides the way you can with sound and duration?
