Chapter 3. Designing a Look > Inserting the Date, Time, and Slide Numbers

Inserting the Date, Time, and Slide Numbers

You can insert the date, the time, and slide numbers into the text of your presentation. For example, you might want today's date to appear in a stock market quote. Dates and times come in two formats: as a field or as text. If you insert the date as a field, PowerPoint inserts a code for the date and then every time you open the presentation, it automatically updates the date from your computer's clock. If you insert the date as text, the date remains the same until you change it. When you insert slide numbers, PowerPoint keeps track of your slide numbers for you. You can even start numbering with a number other than one. This is useful when your slides are a part of a larger presentation.

Click the Insert menu, and then click Date And Time.
