Click on the More Controls button (looks like a hammer and wrench) in the Control Toolbox. Select "Shockwave Flash Object" from the drop-down list, and then draw the control object on your slide. The Shockwave Flash Object ActiveX control now appears on your slide (may look like a white box with an X in it).
Run the show and the Flash animation should now run. NOTE: If you want to run the slide show again and the flash animation doesn't run, close the file and reopen it. If the Flash animation still doesn't play, open the Properties window again and look at the "Playing" property. If it says False, select Playing, then click on the down arrow and change the Playing property to True.
If you need to increase or decrease the height or width of a row or column, you can do so by clicking and dragging the borders of rows or columns. Drag the borders until you create the desired amount of space between rows or columns.
Any object can be turned into a hyperlink. You can, however, create an object to be used specifically as an action button. PowerPoint provides a selection of built-in shapes that can be used for this purpose.
Using action buttons is very similar to drawing objects
