How to Link PowerPoint Pie Charts
to Another Slide in Your Presentation
So you’ve just conducted your ESAT Survey and now need to make a presentation for your management. You will be collating all the results for all managers and putting them up question by question. And you have done your homework – charts and data tables all in place.
Midway during your presentation, one of your Department Heads asks if you can show the stats behind a particular response. You now realize that you will have to cancel the Slide Show mode and flip back and forth between your charts and data tables. At best you can go through your charts till you come to the relevant data table, while you make your audience wait.
24point0 brings to you an incredibly easy 4-step process which will allow you to switch back and forth between your Pie Chart and data table without hitting the Escape button. Follow the simple steps below and learn how to link your pie chart to its data table:
1. Click on the pie chart
2. On your keyboard, press Ctrl + K, and you will see that the pop-up “Edit Hyperlink” appears
3. In the “Link to” column, select “Place in This Document”
4. In the “Select a place in this document“, select Slide 3. This is your data table slide
5. Now press OK to confirm
6. Lastly, create a small thumbnail image of the chart and put it at the bottom of the data table and link it back to the chart using the same method as above
And you’re good to go! But remember, the hyperlink works only in Slide Show mode (F5 or Shift + F5).
