Hi all, first time posting, thanks a lot in advance!
I'm building a powerpoint to demonstrate a concept for a quiz show. As part of this I need to have shapes within powerpoint that can animate in, appear/dissapear etc, to demonstrate the money values that are in the game. These money amounts would change throughout the game, so ideally I would have an excel behind the scenes where I could add/remove items from the money ladder, and have them automatically update within the powerpoint.
For example - The top 3 amounts in the game are £10,000, £5000 and £2000. Those amounts are displayed on nice labels within a powerpoint. The £5000 gets removed from the game, so now the top 3 amounts are £10,000, £2000, and £1000. The £5000 gets removed from a list in excel and the labels in the powerpoint update automatically, so the one that did say £5000 now says £2000, and the one that did say £2000 now reads £1000.
Does that make sense? Is that possible to do, linking together excel and powerpoint in this way?
Thanks!
