    I can’t get slide number and date to show on my slides. I am using Power Point 2002 with WinXP. I click on View/Header and Footer and select the Slide tab. There I check Date and Time/Update Automatically and I check Slide Number. I even put something in the Footer box. I then click on Apply to All. Nothing shows upon the slide anywhere. I’ve tried this on another presentation and it doesn’t work there either.

    What can I do to get this stuff to show up on the slides?

    Thanks,

    Don

    What probably has happened is that you have deleted the place holders for the object from the master accidentally. Go to "View">>"Master">>"Slide Master" and click on the "Master Layout" button on the "Slide Master View" toolbar. Check off the boxes that are missing and that should work. If it does not then feel free to e-mail the file at duluvian at verizon dot net and post here that you mailed me.

    Thanks for the solution! Everywhere I looked I never a reference to the Master Layout. All is well now...
