I imported an EXCEL sheet to Power Point for a presentation. I would only like to expose a couple of rows (the rest are confidential). Is there a way that I can like insert a sort of mask that I will be able to manuever to only expose the desired rows?
I tried covering it with a text box and entered xxx's all over but it does not look presentable. Please help

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Why not just copy thre range that you need into Power Point as opposed the whole thing?

If that doesn't want to work, you could hode the rows & columns that you don't want seen.

I need it to look "Proffesional"!
I am sure there must be some kind of effect to insert that would fade the rest - unwanted rows and columns and leave the necassary rows visible.
I would also like to use it on other Non-Excel files at the same presentation.

Well, you can apply some formatting tricks, like set the font color for the "unviewable data" to white, or format the cells as ;;;.

If it's a relativel;y small area, then just copy that and paste as an image, then you can size the image to fit your slide.
