Simple Powerpoint questions

1. How do I apply animation to specific words in a sentence? For example, 
suppose I want the final word in a sentence to not show up at first, not 
until I click the mouse. Here's my dumb attempt: I highlight the final word, 
go to Custom Animation, and click 'Add Effect' > 'Entrance' > 'Appear'. But 
this ends up selecting the entire sentence, despite the fact that I 
highlighted only the final word in the sentence.

2. I like to do everything by keyboard. But how do I get to 'Add Effect' by 
keyboard? I know I can get to Custom Animation with Alt+A, Alt+C. But then it 
seems I am forced to move my mouse cursor over to 'Add Effect'. At this point 
I can resume keyboard control: E, 1 for 'Entrance' > 'Appear'. Surely there 
is a keyboard shortcut for 'Add Effect', isn't there?

I believe you can only add a click control if you add a 'return' between the 
words (new line). Effect Options/ Effect/ Animate Text : By word will only 
automatically introduce the words - you can set the delay by the % option.

It is i a bit clunky but you could alternatively add a separate text box for 
the final word.

With regard to the keyboard control - you will be glad to hear that this is 
now fixed in PowerPoint 2010 (Beta).

There's no way to animate one word in a paragraph. However you can make it 
look like it happened!

One way here

Another is to add a shape OVER the word and set the fill to slide 
background. Have this shape EXIT on click.

e-mail address privacy question
I have Outlook 2007 and I want to e-mail all my past customers about a new product introduction. I haven't sent out a mass mailing like this before.

Finding a string/using adjacent data question
It's a convuluted question that I hope has an easy answer. I'm rather new to Excel formulas, so I've been trying to find stuff about this on the internet but with not much luck.

Exchange Server 2003 OWA Question
Hi There - we are running MS Small Business Server 2003 and using Exchange Server 2003. In the past when a user logged onto OWA, they were NOT required to enter the domain name. They would just enter their user name and password and then when clicking log in or enter, the domain name would automatically populate into the user name field and log the user on. Yesterday, I applied Exchange Server 2003 SP-1 and now when a user logs in using OWA, they are required to enter the domain name, i.e. DOMAIN/USERNAME. Does anyone know how to change this setting so that it will automatically populate? ...

Checkbook maintenance question
I understand that the cash account balance in the checkbook maintenance screen is the current balance of the cash account tied to the checkbook. In 2 of our 5 checkbooks, the cash account balance does not match the gl balance. We are using separate gl cash accounts for each checkbook. I have run reconcile on the gl and checklinks on Bank rec tables. This is v10.0. How do we get them to match? The check book acts as a sub-ledger to the GL and should be manually reconciled each month. Look for journal entries to cash account as they will cause differences. There are some third party p...

Excel 2007, Basic, Square-1 Opening Question
Clicking on an xls or an xlsx file opens Excel 2007; however, the file itself does not load/open (no blank sheet either). Only way is to drag the file from its directory. What have I done wrong? Tks! Wayne Try minimizing and then maximizing Excel to see if that makes the file appear. If it does, I'll build a small routine that does that automatically when a file is opened. This appears to be a very frequent problem for some Excel 2007 users. Bob Flanagan <wgd.roaming@verizon.net> wrote in message news:9jg3b49oe5t308vjcngefg41f5htajrm2r@4ax.com... > Clicking on an ...
