to add you use the Master Slide to design , to get the date you need to write all the text and then click insert date (red selection) and also for automatic slide number you need write slide and then insert slide number (blue selection)

thanks I have used the master slide and then changed them but we have problem with slide numbers and  it shows " Slide:23" 23 is the total of my presensation so it should change to the slide that where I am going to for example, it should be, 1 of 23 ,2 of 23, 3 of 23 like this..how can I do this?

You need to add text to Slide Master after you finish your presentation , so that you know total number of slides.

So you will add after Slide <#>, text "of XY" where XY is number of slides.

Footers are a bit of a mess after 2003! I just wouldn't use it.

Try this instead:

If you can see footers >> Insert Headers and Footers and untick.

In Slide master view reduce the zoom so you can see space around the slides.
On the large master drag the footer placeholder off slide. All the smaller layouts should follow.

Now add a nrmal text box to the large master

Type in The name of the presentation |
Insert date and Time
Type in | Slide
Insert Slide Number

Change the font size and color as you wish.

This should appear on all slides. Should look like My Presentation | 8th October 2014 | Slide 2
