and will, thorughout the presentation increase by 1 every 30 seconds or so
and not reset to 0 whenever the slide changes. Is this possible?

Hi Ian,

There are some options that include vba, or simple animations:

An "LCD" counter that you can change

Clocks and timers for PowerPoint

Enjoy!

whether you are using vba, or
anything else relevant

Glen, thanks for this - some ideas for other times, but I am trying for a
counter that will count up on its own. The reason is I am making a
presentation in which I am talking about the problme of human traffiking and
the ongoing slave trade and I want a counter that, by increasign through the
presentation, will give an indication as to how many lives have been ruined
by this continuing trade since the presentation began. Hence starting at 0 -
increasing automatically and not resetting when I move between slides.

Ian
If you don't want to use vba then I think the only option would be a small
video of the countdown eg in a corner which would play across slides. It will
be quite a large file though. You can easily create a video of a screen
powerpoint countdown and add it to the presentation using free or cheap
tools. Email if this might be the way to go.

around 600K for 10 minutes worth not too bad!

Hi,

These work in reverse by tweaking the vba. As for across slides, it will
probably be API. This is where we yell "help"!

I made a conscious decision to not learn vba. I am ever so happy and sleep
better at night. I can see enough possibilities for what PowerPoint "could"
do without worrying about code to make it do it <g>.
