Animating Charts

If you have a chart slide you can right click on the chart to choose Custom Animation and use the Chart Effects  section of the animation window to apply special effects.

Using the Chart Effects you can make each series or category appear one-at-a-time and can even add sounds.  Remove the tick from the Animate grid and legend box if you only want to animate the columns or lines of the chart.  If you animate a pie chart with data labels using the by Category option, each segment will appear individually with its associated label.
