Launching Other Applications from a Presentation

The age-old problem with 35mm slide presentations is that they are truly linear in organization. If someone in your audience wants you to cover an item in much greater detail than you have in the slide tray, you are hard-pressed to jump to supporting visuals out of sequence. Even if you are using the more flexible medium of overheads, you may still have to shuffle overheads in backup folders to find the detailed answer about the results in the Chicago market for the Rainforest shampoo brand. With PowerPoint 97, that problem no longer exists. You can hide the detail and yet have instant access to it at the click of the mouse.

The basic idea is to establish a hyperlink from the presentation page to the specific data that is summarized on that page. This will permit you to jump into the specific document that contains the data you are talking about. You can also operate that source program at the same time and manipulate the details to add extra explanations as necessary without affecting the summary level of your presentation. When you are through dealing with that specific question, a mouse click returns you to where you were in the slide show.
