Chapter 7. Sharing Graphs > 7.5 Placing Animated Graphs into PowerPoint

7.5 Placing Animated Graphs into PowerPoint

Before moving these graphs into PowerPoint, first save your graph as a Flash file (as described in the previous section). Once you have done this, you will point to the .swf file from inside PowerPoint. This process is a little more involved, but we walk you through the steps here:

  1. Save your Shockwave Flash (".swf") file. Note the file name and location on your computer.

  2. Create a PowerPoint slide with a layout format that provides ample room to display the animations, such as Title and Content (see Figure 7.20).

    Figure 7.20.

  3. Once you have created the PowerPoint slide, select the Developer tab (see Figure 7.21).

    Figure 7.21.

    Note: We are illustrating this example with PowerPoint 2007. If you use other versions of PowerPoint the steps may differ. If needed, consult PowerPoint Help or www.jmp.com/support.

  4. Select (the More Controls icon) to view more controls (see Figure 7.22).

    Figure 7.22.

  5. Select Shockwave Flash Object, and click OK (see Figure 7.23).

    Figure 7.23.

  6. On your PowerPoint slide, adjust the box to the right size to accommodate the Flash-animated graph. For this example, enlarge this small box (the one with the lines bisecting each corner or what looks like an X) to fill the entire lower panel of the slide (see Figure 7.24).

    Figure 7.24.

  7. Right-click inside the box and select Properties (see Figure 7.25).

    Figure 7.25.

  8. Under Movie, specify the path to your .swf file (see Figure 7.26).

    Figure 7.26.

  9. When you are finished, close the window. Save your PowerPoint file.
