Bullet points appearing one-by-one

I want my bullet points to appear one-by-one on my click. I am able to do 
that easily for my level 1 bullets, but I cannot seem to do it with the 
second level bullets unless I highlight and set the animation for each bullet 
separately. I'm sure there is a way to do this all at once.

Try this:-

1. Go to the slide where your bullet points are. 

2. Click somewhere in the bullet point list. 

3. Animations tab / Animations group / Custom Animation. 

The Custom Animation Task Pane should now be open on the right hand side of 
the window. 

4. Click Add Effect / Entrance / 3. Checkerboard / now set the Start: field 
to On Click. 

5. To test that it works:-

Slide Show / Start Slide Show group / From Current Slide 

You should now find that your bullet points only come in on mouse click. 

If my comments have helped please hit Yes.

Hi Rick

Go to the custom Animation pane and double cleck (or use the dropdown arrow) 
to get to Effect Options > Text Animation

Now choose "By second level paragraphs"

See if that does what you need

How to combine cells into one
I am trying to map a product list to a template for their my website ecommerce app. my product fields don't match up exactly with the website so in some cases I need to consolidate fields.

Splitting up multiple lines in one cell to one line per cell in multiple cells
I have cells each of which contains multiple lines of text (use Alt- Enter at end of each line when entered).

How does an address appear to have 2 fields in 1
Hi-I recently learned Access and have created tables. I noticed that in the sample Database provided (Norhtwind) they have a Customers Table that has an address field.

Indentation in bulleted list
How do I inent the second line of a bulleted list? Thanks! Is this Word 2007? Then you should right-click the bulleted paragraph and choose Adjust List Indents from the context menu. In the dialog box, "Bullet position" is the distance from the left margin to the bullet character; "Text indent" is the distance to the text from the left margin. For a hanging indent, you would specify a larger value than for "Bullet position." For "Follow number with," choose "Tab character." Select "Add tab stop at," and then specify the ...

Pointing to a pointer to an .mdb
I have a database called xpto.mdb Several users run it simultaneously without a problem: \ \computername_name\dir\xpto.mdb. The problem is that, as version change (minor changes), I will have xpto-v1.mdb, xpto-v2.mdb, etc. Of course the data is in a different place. I had an idea to force users to move to new .mdb(engine) version every time they exit access. I created a batch file pointing to the last .mdb version and a shortcut to the batch file. Users run the shortcut, the shortcut calls the .bat file, the btch file runs the .mdb file, access starts and it goes(?) well. If there is a n...

Mail Folder Appears on Desktop when I start Outlook
I recently set up Outlook 2007, which included importing e-mail messages from Windows Mail. When I start up Outlook, it creates a folder titled Mail on my desktop with nothing in it. While this doesn't appear to have any use, it is annoying to have this appear again the next time I start Outlook even after deleting it previously. I am not sure if it is related to my importing mail from Windows Mail, because I believe I designated a folder on my desktop (possibly titled "Mail") for my Windows Mail messages in order to import correctly. But then I deleted it (and most of...
