Interactive powerpoint questionaire to run custom slide show

Hey, I've been having a problem with PowerPoint and figured I might get some help here.

I'm working on creating a new interactive PowerPoint (mac 2011) presentation, after a short introduction I want to have one or more slides with questions, based on the answers of those I would like to show specific slides. I was thinking that custom slides show could help here. Basically based on specific entries in the short questionnaire a different custom slides could be activated, I am not sure how to do this properly. Hyperlinking or action buttons only work on one level, the questionnaire on the other hand really needs several entries in combination to get to the chosen custom slides.

(Maybe one way would be to have every answer linked to a new slide with previous choices 'filled in', but this would make a huge and messy presentation)

Thx in advanced!

Custom Shows do appear to be the right way forward but you're right that it's difficult to create a hierarchy for links. I work for a company that has a hierarchical add-in product for PowerPoint called ActivePrez. Whilst it only runs on PC versions of PowerPoint, the presentation content that it creates will work on both PC and Mac versions of PowerPoint.

Note that this add-in creates standard PowerPoint shapes and links so you can also do this manually but with just a handful of slides, the management of the links can become quite time consuming.
